  • 14-3-3 family
  • CATEGORY regulatory
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     intracellular
    basic FUNCTION
  • acting as an adapter protein implicated in the regulation of a large spectrum of both general and specialized signaling pathway
  • inhibitor of apoptosis through inhibiting the activation of p38 MAP kinase
  • acting as a multifunctional regulator
  • involved in negative regulation of protein kinase activity
  • acting as a protein kinase C inhibitor
  • oncogenic activities cooperate with loss of TP53 to promote lung tumorigenesis
  • binds strongly to cruciform structures and is crucial for initiating replication
  • role for the YWHAG protein in its binding to local DNA structures which are stabilized by DNA supercoiling
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell life, differentiation
    cell life, antiapoptosis
  • regulation of synaptic plasticity
  • regulation of neuron differentiation
  • regulation of signal transduction
  • a component
  • forming a molecular complex with HSPD1 and PRNP in the CNS under physiological conditions and this complex might become disintegrated in the pathologic process of prion diseases
    small molecule metal binding,
  • Ca2+
  • protein
  • p38 MAP kinase
  • binding to a large number of partners, usually by recognition of a phosphoserine or phosphothreonine motif (which results in the modulation of the activity of the binding partner)
  • interacting with RAF1, SSH1 and CRTC2/TORC2
  • binding to insulin-like growth factor receptor
  • binding to protein kinase C
  • YWHAG binds to the MDM4 domain adjacent to CDKN1A binding suggesting that YWHAG may affect MDM4-mediated CDKN1A proteasomal turnover
  • YWHAG binds to phosphorylated serines 49 and 218 of RGS18
  • YWHAG induction in Class switch DNA recombination (CSR) is enabled by the CXXC1-mediated H3K4me3 enrichment in the promoter, dependent on NFKB1 and sustained by TCF3
  • is a binding partner for TRPM4
  • TP53 interacted with C-terminal domain of YWHAG and induced YWHAG ubiquitination
  • CSNK2A1 interacts at the neuromuscular synapse with RAPSN, RAC1, YWHAG, and DOK7 proteins and phosphorylates the latter two
  • cell & other
    repressed by negatively regulated by TP53 through binding to its promoter and inhibiting its transcription
