KIAA0895 is a human gene that encodes a protein known as KIAA0895 protein or hypothetical protein LOC23366.[3][4] Other known aliases are OTTHUMP00000206979 and OTTHUMP00000206980.[5]


The KIAA0895 gene is located at p14.2 on chromosome 7.

The location of the KIAA0895 gene on chromosome 7

It can be transcribed into 15 transcript variants, which in turn can produce 13 different isoforms of the protein.[6]

The genomic DNA is 65,976 [base pair]s long,[3] while the longest mRNA that it produces is 4463 bases long.

Gene Neighborhood[edit]

KIAA0895 is surrounded by the following genes on chromosome 7:[3]


The longest protein isoform that is produced by the KIAA0895 gene is termed LOC23366 isoform 1 and is 520 amino acids long.[7]


Domain of unknown function 1704
Symbol DUF1704
Pfam PF08014
InterPro IPR012548

LOC23366 contains a protein domain of unknown function called DUF1704.[8]

It also contains a region of low complexity from position 120 to position 150 in the protein,[9] and an arginine-rich area from position 12 to position 51.[10]

Post-translational Modification[edit]

The KIAA0895 protein is predicted to undergo phosphorylation at several serines, threonines, and tyrosines throughout its structure, particularly in the first half of the protein[11] The predicted phosphorylation sites are shown on the accompanying graph. There are also predicted to be three N-linked glycosylation sites.[12]

KIAA0895 is shown to be expressed at low levels in various tissues throughout the body. It is expressed most highly in the adrenal gland, the bone marrow, and the testis.[13] It is also found in cancerous tissues, most highly in cervical tumors and bladder carcinoma.


KIAA0895 has one paralog in humans known as KIAA0895L.[14] Orthologs have been found in all mammals, and eukaryotes through T. thermophila.[15] The full list of organisms in which orthologs have been found is given below.
