Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Transcription regulator that converts stress signals into a program of gene expression that empowers cells with resistance to the stress induced by a change in their microenvironment. Thereby participates in regulation of many process namely cell-cycle, apoptosis, autophagy and DNA repair responses (PubMed:16478804, PubMed:19650074, PubMed:16300740, PubMed:19723804, PubMed:11056169, PubMed:22858377, PubMed:11940591, PubMed:18690848, PubMed:22565310, PubMed:20181828, PubMed:30451898). Controls cell cycle progression and protects cells from genotoxic stress induced by doxorubicin through the complex formation with TP53 and EP300 that binds CDKN1A promoter leading to transcriptional induction of CDKN1A (PubMed:18690848). Protects pancreatic cancer cells from stress-induced cell death by binding the RELB promoter and activating its transcription, leading to IER3 transactivation (PubMed:22565310). Negatively regulates apoptosis through interaction with PTMA (PubMed:16478804). Inhibits autophagy-induced apoptosis in cardiac cells through FOXO3 interaction, inducing cytoplasmic translocation of FOXO3 thereby preventing the FOXO3 association with the pro-autophagic BNIP3 promoter (PubMed:20181828). Inhibits cell growth and facilitates programmed cell death by apoptosis after adriamycin-induced DNA damage through transactivation of TP53 (By similarity). Regulates methamphetamine-induced apoptosis and autophagy through DDIT3-mediated endoplasmic reticulum stress pathway (By similarity). Participates in DNA repair following gamma-irradiation by facilitating DNA access of the transcription machinery through interaction with MSL1 leading to inhibition of histone H4' Lys-16' acetylation (H4K16ac) (PubMed:19650074). Coactivator of PAX2 transcription factor activity, both by recruiting EP300 to increase PAX2 transcription factor activity and by binding PAXIP1 to suppress PAXIP1-induced inhibition on PAX2 (PubMed:11940591). Positively regulates cell cycle progression through interaction with COPS5 inducing cytoplasmic translocation of CDKN1B leading to the CDKN1B degradation (PubMed:16300740). Coordinates, through its interaction with EP300, the assiociation of MYOD1, EP300 and DDX5 to the MYOG promoter, leading to inhibition of cell-cycle progression and myogenic differentiation promotion (PubMed:19723804). Negatively regulates beta cell proliferation via inhibition of cell-cycle regulatory genes expression through the suppression of their promoter activities (By similarity). Also required for LHB expression and ovarian maturation (By similarity). Exacerbates CNS inflammation and demyelination upon cuprizone treatment (By similarity). UniProt

Subunit Structure
Monomer. Directly interacts with MSL1 and binds MORF4L1, two components of histone acetyltransferase complex; the interaction with MORF4L1 may be mediated by MSL1 (PubMed:19650074). Interacts with EP300; this interaction enhances the effect of EP300 on PAX2 transcription factor activity (PubMed:11940591). Interacts with PAXIP1; this interaction prevents PAXIP1 inhibition of PAX2 transcription factor activity (PubMed:11940591). Interacts with COPS5; this interaction allows COPS5-dependent CDKN1B nuclear to cytoplasm translocation (PubMed:16300740). Interacts with RNF2 (PubMed:28720707). Interacts with FOXO3; this interaction represses FOXO3 transactivation (PubMed:20181828). Interacts with PTMA; negatively regulates apoptotic process (PubMed:16478804). Interacts with MYOD1, EP300 and DDX5; this interaction coordinates the association of anti-proliferative and pro-myogenic proteins at the myogenin promoter (PubMed:19723804) (By similarity). Interacts with TP53; interaction is stress-dependent (PubMed:18690848). Forms a complex with EP300 and TP53; this complex binds CDKN1A promoter leading to transcriptional induction of CDKN1A (PubMed:18690848). UniProt

Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
