Summaries for AEN Gene

GeneCards Summary for AEN Gene

AEN (Apoptosis Enhancing Nuclease) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and exonuclease activity. An important paralog of this gene is ISG20.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for AEN Gene

  • Exonuclease with activity against single- and double-stranded DNA and RNA. Mediates p53-induced apoptosis. When induced by p53 following DNA damage, digests double-stranded DNA to form single-stranded DNA and amplifies DNA damage signals, leading to enhancement of apoptosis.

Function for AEN Gene

Molecular function for AEN Gene

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function:
Exonuclease with activity against single- and double-stranded DNA and RNA. Mediates p53-induced apoptosis. When induced by p53 following DNA damage, digests double-stranded DNA to form single-stranded DNA and amplifies DNA damage signals, leading to enhancement of apoptosis.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Induction:
Up-regulated by p53/TP53 in response to ionizing radiation and DNA-damaging agents such as adriamycin. Phosphorylation of p53/TP53 at Ser-15 is required for effective induction.
