    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     intracellular
    intracellular,cytoplasm,cytosolic
    basic FUNCTION
  • regulates the ligand-dependent activation of STAT3
  • may have a role in chromatin structure and transcription via the elongator complex and its histone actelytransferase activity
  • is a necessary component for functional Elongator and acts as a hub in the formation of various complexes
  • ELP1, ELP2, ELP3, ELP4, ELP5, ELP6 plays vital roles in gene regulation
  • CELLULAR PROCESS nucleotide, chromatin organization, remodeling
    nucleotide, transcription, elongation
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS
    PATHWAY
    metabolism
    signaling signal transduction
    a component
  • subunit of the elongator complex (ELP3, IKAP, ELP4, STATIP1)
  • core Elongator complex formed by IKBKAP, ELP2, and ELP3 was rather stable, whereas ELP4, ELP5, and ELP6 might loosely contact and work together with the core Elongator to regulate cell functions
  • INTERACTION
    DNA
    RNA
    small molecule
    protein
  • interacts with preferentially unphosphorylated STAT3
  • affinity for member of the Jak family proteins
  • cell & other
  • binds microtubules through its conserved alkaline residues
