<p>The annotation score provides a heuristic measure of the annotation content of a UniProtKB entry or proteome. This score <strong>cannot</strong> be used as a measure of the accuracy of the annotation as we cannot define the ‘correct annotation’ for any given protein.<p><a href='/help/annotation_score' target='_top'>More...</a></p>

Minor structural protein that acts as an endoribonuclease during lytic infection. Degrades host mRNAs in the cytoplasm by cutting them at preferred sites, including some in regions of translation initiation. Together with inhibition of host splicing by ICP27, contributes to an overall decrease in host protein synthesis. Also, after the onset of viral transcription, accelerates the turnover of viral mRNA, thereby facilitating the sequential expression of different classes of viral genes. Binds translation initiation factors eIF4H, eIF4AI, and eIF4AII, thereby may interact directly with the translation initiation complex and thus digest specifically mRNAs. Also impedes antigen presentation by major histocompatibility complex class I and class II molecules, inhibits secretion of cytokines that would otherwise recruit lymphocytes and neutrophils cells to the site of infection and blocks the activation of dendritic cells. Impedes the alpha/beta interferon-mediated response to infection (By similarity).By similarity

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence. It is useful for tracking sequence updates.</p> <p>It should be noted that while, in theory, two different sequences could have the same checksum value, the likelihood that this would happen is extremely low.</p> <p>However UniProtKB may contain entries with identical sequences in case of multiple genes (paralogs).</p> <p>The checksum is computed as the sequence 64-bit Cyclic Redundancy Check value (CRC64) using the generator polynomial: x<sup>64</sup> + x<sup>4</sup> + x<sup>3</sup> + x + 1. The algorithm is described in the ISO 3309 standard. </p> <p class="publication">Press W.H., Flannery B.P., Teukolsky S.A. and Vetterling W.T.<br /> <strong>Cyclic redundancy and other checksums</strong><br /> <a href="http://www.nrbook.com/b/bookcpdf.php">Numerical recipes in C 2nd ed., pp896-902, Cambridge University Press (1993)</a>)</p> Checksum:i56B062B3088B439F
