Gene: DDX56 (DEAD-box helicase 56) Homo sapiens
Symbol: DDX56
Name: DEAD-box helicase 56
Description: Exhibits RNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in positive regulation of neuron projection development and rRNA processing. Localizes to the nucleolus.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: 61-kd nucleolar helicase; ATP-dependent 61 kDa nucleolar RNA helicase; DDX21; DDX26; DEAD (Asp-Glu-Ala-Asp) box helicase 56; DEAD (Asp-Glu-Ala-Asp) box polypeptide 56; DEAD box protein 21; DEAD box protein 56; DEAD-box RNA helicase; NOH61; nucleolar helicase of 61 kDa; probable ATP-dependent RNA helicase DDX56; putative nucleolar RNA helicase
