  • four N-terminal zinc finger domains
  • a central core domain which is necessary for Rad51-containing focus formation after ssDNA damage
  • a stretch with 11 SQ/TQ motifs at the C- terminal end (17 SQ/TQ in the full-length polypeptide) which implicate ATMIN as a potential ATM and ATR kinase substrate, and SQ/TQ cluster domain (SCD) is a transcription activation domain (TAD) in human cells
  • an ATM-interaction motif present near the C-terminus and homologous to that present in NBS1

    basic FUNCTION
  • DNA damage response protein, that may affect the choice between competing base repair pathways in a manner that reduces the amount of substrates available for Ig gene conversion
  • DNA damage response protein that has been proposed to be a regulator and stabilizing co-factor of the ATM kinase
  • defines a novel NBS1-independent pathway of ATM signaling
  • SQ/TQ cluster domain-containing protein, acting as a lesion-specific focus scaffold in a Rad51-dependent pathway that resolves cytotoxic repair intermediates, most likely single-stranded DNA gaps, resulting from MLH1-dependent processing of base lesions
  • may function as structurally related scaffolds that facilitate efficient DNA repair, albeit with diverged lesion specificity
  • mediates ATM activation by oxidative stress, and thereby protects the aging brain by preventing accumulation of DNA damage
  • exert its developmental functions as a transcription factor
  • forms DNA damage-induced nuclear foci, and is required for cell survival, specifically in response to lesions repaired by the base excision repair pathway
  • in addition to its role in the DNA base damage response, has separate developmental functions as an essential regulator of respiratory organogenesis
  • function in DNA damage survival and in controlling the early stages of lung development
  • also contributes to neural tube development, but histologically other organs seemed to be developing normally
  • plays a key role in the auto-regulation of DYNLL1 levels
  • functioning as a sensor of DYNLL1 protein levels in a novel feedback mechanism for auto-regulated gene expression
  • key role in regulating the survival of developing B cells by activating DYNLL1 expression, which may then modulate BCL2L11-dependent apoptosis
  • transcription factor ATMIN (Asciz) is required for both lung tubulogenesis and ciliogenesis
  • ATMIN is critical for normal kidney development and mechanistically, ATMIN modifies Wnt signaling pathways
  • UBR5-mediated ATMIN ubiquitination is a vital event for ATM pathway selection and activation in response to DNA damage
  • mediates noncanonical ATM signaling in response to oxidative and replicative stress conditions
  • has multiple roles in different cell types, and its absence results in perturbed hematopoiesis, especially during stress conditions and aging
  • ATMIN is dispensable for ATM activation
  • encodes a cofactor required for activation of ATM kinase by replication stress
  • is a tumor suppressor in Lung adenocarcinoma
    a component
  • essential component of the ATM signaling pathway in response to oxidative stress and aging
    small molecule
  • interacts with ATM through a C-terminal motif, which is also present in Nijmegen breakage syndrome (NBN) (competition of NBN and ATMIN for ATM binding)
  • DYNLL1-binding partner
  • UBR5 interacts with ATMIN and catalyzes ubiquitination of ATMIN at lysine 238 in an IR-stimulated manner, which decreases ATMIN interaction with ATM and promotes MRN-mediated signaling
  • ATMIN primarily promotes ciliogenesis by regulating DYNLL1 expression
  • DNA repair cofactors ATMIN and NBN are required to suppress T Cell activation
  • ATMIN is a modulator of PKHD1
