The isotypes of the 14-3-3 proteins
|YWHAB||20q13.1||Beta/Alpha||β/α||α is a phosphorylated form of β|
|YWHAQ||2p25.1||Tau/Theta||τ/θ||θ is an alternative name for τ|
|YWHAZ||8q23.1||Zeta/Delta||ξ/δ||δ is a phosphorylated form of ξ|
Highly conserved seven isoforms of the 14-3-3 proteins have been identified. The α and δ are phosphorylated forms of the β and ξ, respectively and theta is an alternative name for tau. Genes encoding these isotypes are located at different positions of the human chromosomes.
