    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     intracellular
    basic FUNCTION
  • involved in lipogenesis in liver, mammary and adipose tissues
  • it plays a role in the regulation of lipogenic enzymes during tumorigenesis
  • playing a role in thyroid hormone receptor -dependent transcriptional activation of the expression of specific genes
  • role in the TP53-dependent transcriptional activation of specific genes via diverse pathways in cells
  • is required for normal lipogenesis in the lactating mammary gland, but not the liver
  • implicated in supporting regulated lipogenesis
  • both MID1IP1 and THRSP are directly involved in supporting hepatic lipogenesis and that the two proteins play overlapping roles in this process
  • carbohydrate-inducible and thyroid-hormone-inducible nuclear protein specific to liver, adipose and lactating mammary tissues
  • functions to activate genes encoding fatty-acid synthesis enzymes
  • playing a role in thyroid hormone stimulation of lipogenesis
  • modulates malonyl-CoA levels and de novo lipogenesis
  • regulates de novo fatty acid synthesis in the liver, adipose, and lactating mammary gland
  • potential role in regulating mammary tumor growth and fatty acid synthesis
  • CELLULAR PROCESS nucleotide, transcription
    metabolism lipid/lipoprotein , other
    signaling hormonal
    a component
  • THRSP can form heterodimers with MID1IP1
    small molecule
  • physically and functionally interacts with thyroid receptor in the regulation of malic enzyme gene expression
  • involved both in the regulation of malic enzyme promoter activity, and in the regulation of TP53-dependent transactivation
  • seems to act as a molecular brake on FASN-dependent lipogenesis, potentially also integrating other signals, such as thyroid hormone-regulated pathways
  • stimulated fatty acid synthase (FASN) activity in vitro, and increased the synthesis of fatty acids in mammary epithelial cells in vivo
