<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>

Transcriptional activator. Binds to the DNA sequence 5'-AACAAT-3' (By similarity). All of the sox17 proteins are required for embryonic endoderm development and gastrulation movements, and show some redundancy in function. In addition, the sox17 proteins have distinct but overlapping roles in later gut development. Acts downstream of vegt-signaling in endoderm differentiation to induce a range of endodermal genes both directly (including endodermin and dhh/chh) and indirectly. Also represses wnt-responsive genes to inhibit wnt/beta-catenin signaling.By similarity11 Publications

In early gastrulae, expressed in the vegetal but not animal hemisphere. The vegetal region is fated to become endoderm, and endodermal expression continues throughout gastrulation and neurulation. At tailbud stages, expression is down-regulated and becomes restricted to the most posterior endoderm and the future liver/gall bladder region. By 3-7 days, endodermal expression is restricted to the gall bladder bud. Also expressed in the embryonic gut, with strong expression in the posterior gut during tailbud stages, but by stage 40, expression rises again in the anterior gut. Expressed at a low level in the adult kidney and spleen.7 Publications

<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:iBBB4D116897C69AA
