Basonuclin 1

basonuclin, BNC, basonuclin 1
The protein encoded by this gene is a zinc finger protein present in the basal cell layer of the epidermis and in hair follicles. It is also found in abundance in the germ cells of testis and ovary. This protein is thought to play a regulatory role in keratinocyte proliferation and it may also be a regulator for rRNA transcription. This gene seems to have multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants, but their full-length nature is not known yet. There seems to be evidence of multiple polyadenylation sites for this gene.

Basonuclins 1 and 2, whose genes share a common origin, are proteins with widely different properties and functions.
Djian et al., Paris, France. In Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2006
Data show that basonuclin (Bn)2 but not bn1 colocalizes with SC35 in nuclear speckles, and may have a function in nuclear processing of mRNA.
