EIF2C1

(redirected from AGO1)

EIF2C1

A gene on chromosome 1p34.3 that encodes a protein required for RNA-mediated gene silencing, binding to short RNAs, such as microRNAs or short interfering RNAs, and repressing the translation of mRNAs complementary to them. EIF2C1 lacks endonuclease activity and does not appear to cleave target mRNAs. It is required for transcriptional gene silencing of promoter regions which are complementary to bound short anti-gene RNA.

Argonaute proteins typically have a molecular weight of~ 100 kDa and can be divided into two subfamilies: AGO subfamily (e.g., AGO1, AGO2, AGO3, and AGO4 in mammals) that binds to miRNAs and siRNAs and PIWI subfamily (HIWI/PIWIL1, HILI/PIWIL2, HIWI2/PIWIL4, and HIWI3/PIWIL3) that binds to piRNAs [4].
Further, 3 rr control samples were tested (147J, 1660, and 7807), and the results showed amplification of only the reference (AGO1), giving a ratio of zero (Fig.
(32) Among them, AGO1 is involved in miRNA mediated gene regulation either by cutting miRNA target mRNAs (33) or repressing their translation.

After genotyping, we excluded those SNPs for which fewer than 10 participants were homozygous variant carriers [rgl 106042 in HIWI, rs3742330 in DICER, rs417309 in DiGeorge critical region-8 (DGCR8), rs636832 in Argonaute 1 (AGO1)] and also those with a Hardy-Weinberg p-value < 0.05 (rs10719 in DROSHA), leaving a total of 19 SNPs in 10 genes.
