    text
  • cellular localization is mainly cytosolic, but a small fraction of the protein is present in the nucleus
  • basic FUNCTION
  • involved in the protection against apoptosis mediated by APAF1
  • can function as an ATM activator to inhibit G2/M progression
  • regulator of apoptosis whose overexpression is associated with poor prognosis in several cancers, including childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia and acute myeloid leukemia
  • estrogen target gene and may be involved in the mechanism of testicular apoptosis control by estrogens (

    small molecule
    protein
  • binding to APAF1, BCLXL, BCL2
  • new ATM activator and, in aggregate,AVEN, a known apoptotic inhibitor, is a critical transducer of the DNA-damage signal
  • serves as an activator and substrate of ATM, thereby modulating the DNA-damage response and G(2)/M cell cycle progression
  • cell & other
    REGULATION
    Other regulation of nucleocytoplasmatic traffic of AVEN could modulate potentially its ability to influence cell cycle progression
