Disrupted PERCC1 gene expression causes an intractable congenital diarrhoea in infants. However, this gene’s molecular mechanism is unknown and no homologous proteins have been reported.

Our detailed evolutionary analysis of PERCC1 sequence reveals it to be a previously unappreciated member of the YAP/TAZ/FAM181 family of homologous transcriptional regulators. Like YAP and TAZ, PERCC1 likely interacts with DNA via binding to TEA/ATTS domain transcription factors (TEADs) using its conserved interface-2 and -3 sequences. We compare the expression patterns of PERCC1 with those of YAP, TAZ, TEADs. Our report provides the identification and first in-depth bioinformatic analysis of a YAP/TAZ homologue, and a likely new regulator of the YAP/TAZ-TEAD transcriptional complex.
