    motifs/domains
  • a leucine-zipper domain that dictates, upon oligomerization, its interaction with ACIN1 as well as the antiapoptotic effect of ACIN1 on drug-induced cell death
  • three overlapping hydrophobic heptad repeats

    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     intracellular
    intracellular,nucleus
    basic FUNCTION
  • acting downstream of E2F and suppressing E2F-dependent apoptosis without generally blocking E2F-dependent transcription
  • survival protein whose expression prevents apoptosis that occurs on deprivation of growth factors, physiologically binds to ACIN1 and prevents ACIN1-mediated DNA fragmentation
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell life, antiapoptosis
