Smed Unigene SMU15000837 : Cannot Determine

SMU15000837 is represented by 1 transcripts from 1 libraries.

Smed Unigenes are generated by clustering all available transcripts to generate a model, or Smed Unigene, representing all similar transcripts. The Smed Unigene may not accurately reflect each transcript due to biological processes such as alternative splicing.

Comparison of cluster transcripts with ENSEMBL and SWISPROT proteins. The alignments can suggest function of the cluster.

Associated Gene Ontology Terms
Gene Ontology terms are derived from the unigene transcript cluster compared to InterPro proteins. The GO terms can suggest function of the cluster.

Name gap junction channel activity
Ontology Molecular function
  • alt_id: GO:0015285
  • alt_id: GO:0015286
  • broad: intercellular channel
  • exact: innexin channel activity
  • narrow: innexin
  • related: connexin
Definition A wide pore channel activity that enables a direct cytoplasmic connection from one cell to an adjacent cell. The gap junction can pass large solutes as well as electrical signals between cells. Gap junctions consist of two gap junction hemi-channels, or connexons, one contributed by each membrane through which the gap junction passes.

Name plasma membrane
Ontology Cellular component
  • alt_id: GO:0005904
  • broad: juxtamembrane
  • exact: cell membrane
  • exact: cytoplasmic membrane
  • exact: plasmalemma
  • narrow: bacterial inner membrane
  • narrow: inner endospore membrane
  • narrow: plasma membrane lipid bilayer
Definition The membrane surrounding a cell that separates the cell from its external environment. It consists of a phospholipid bilayer and associated proteins.

Name cell-cell junction
Ontology Cellular component
  • exact: intercellular junction
Definition A cell junction that forms a connection between two cells; excludes direct cytoplasmic junctions such as ring canals.

Name gap junction
Ontology Cellular component
  • exact: communicating junction
  • exact: gap junction macula
  • exact: gap junction plaque
  • exact: macula communicans
  • exact: zonula communicans
  • related: electrical synapse
  • related: electrotonic synapse
Definition A cell-cell junction that is composed of an array of small channels that permit small molecules to pass from one cell to another. At gap junctions, the membranes of two adjacent cells are separated by a uniform narrow gap of about 2-4 nm that is spanned by channel-forming proteins called connexins, which form hexagonal tubes called connexons.

Name integral to membrane
Ontology Cellular component
  • related: transmembrane
Definition Penetrating at least one phospholipid bilayer of a membrane. May also refer to the state of being buried in the bilayer with no exposure outside the bilayer. When used to describe a protein, indicates that all or part of the peptide sequence is embedded in the membrane.

Name ion transmembrane transport
Ontology Biological process
  • exact: ion membrane transport
  • exact: transmembrane ion transport
Definition A process in which an ion is transported from one side of a membrane to the other by means of some agent such as a transporter or pore.

Name gap junction hemi-channel activity
Ontology Molecular function
  • exact: connexon channel activity
Definition A wide pore channel activity that enables the transport of a solute across a membrane via a gap junction hemi-channel. Two gap junction hemi-channels coupled together form a complete gap junction.
