FAMILY
  • akirin family
  • CATEGORY unknown/unspecified
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     intracellular
    intracellular,nucleus
    basic FUNCTION
  • conserved nuclear factor required for innate immune responses
  • promotes sustained ERK1/2 activation through repression of MAKP1 transcription, resulting in promotion of tumorigenicity and metastasis
  • plays an important role in oncogenesis of LLC1 lung carcinoma cells, an may also serve as an oncogene in other cancers
  • important nuclear factor which plays functions in innate immune response, myogenesis, muscle development, and carcinogenesis
  • nuclear protein, bridging NFKB1 and the chromatin remodeling SWI/SNF complex by interacting with SMARCD proteins as well as NFKBIZ, which forms a complex with the NFKB1 p50 subunit
  • is critical for inducing inflammatory genes by bridging NFKBIZ and the SWI/SNF complex
  • CELLULAR PROCESS
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS
    PATHWAY
    metabolism
    signaling
    a component
  • AKIRIN2-YWHAB complex could act as a transcriptional silencer, and MAPK1 was one of the target genes of the AKIRIN2-YWHAB complex
  • INTERACTION
    DNA
    RNA
    small molecule
    protein
  • YWHAB-binding factor
  • BCAM is a suppressive oncoprotein, and FBI1/AKIRIN2 is involved in tumorigenicity and metastasis of hepatoma through the downregulation of suppressive oncogenes
