  • 14-3-3 family
  • CATEGORY regulatory
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     intracellular
    basic FUNCTION
  • component of the cardiac Na(+) channel acting as a cofactor for the regulation of the cardiac Na(+) current
  • inhibitor of apoptosis through inhibiting the activation of MAPK14
  • functioning as a positive regulator in the glucocorticoid signal pathway by blocking the degradation of glucocorticoid receptor (GR) and inducing an elevation of GR, thus enhancing the transcriptional activity of GR
  • inhibitor of ZBTB17
  • chaperone-like protein present abundantly in neurons, that could bind to parkin and negatively regulate its ubiquitin ligase activity
  • regulator that functionally links parkin and SNCA
  • may be playing a regulatory role in chondrogenic differentiation
  • key regulator in the growth impairment of children with joint inflammatory disease
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell life, antiapoptosis
    a component
  • HDAC7 directly binds to beta-catenin and forms a complex with YWHAE, YWHAZ, and YWHAH proteins
    small molecule
  • p38 MAP kinase
  • interaction with YWHAB, YWHAE, ATXN1, YWHAZ mediated by AKT1 to modulate the neurotoxicity of SCA1
  • interacting with SCN5A cytoplasmic I interdomain
  • GREM1 interacted with YWHAH (YWHAH binding site for gremlin 1 was located between AAs 61-80 and gremlin 1 binding site for YWHAH was found to be located between AAs 1 to 67)
  • directly regulate CAMK1 when the enzyme is phosphorylated by protein kinase A on either Ser74 or Ser475
