Summaries for AIFM2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for AIFM2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a flavoprotein oxidoreductase that binds single stranded DNA and is thought to contribute to apoptosis in the presence of bacterial and viral DNA. The expression of this gene is also found to be induced by tumor suppressor protein p53 in colon cancer cells. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2010]

GeneCards Summary for AIFM2 Gene

AIFM2 (Apoptosis-Inducing Factor, Mitochondrion-Associated, 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Direct p53 effectors. GO annotations related to this gene include flavin adenine dinucleotide binding and electron-transferring-flavoprotein dehydrogenase activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for AIFM2 Gene

  • Oxidoreductase, which may play a role in mediating a p53/TP53-dependent apoptosis response. Probable oxidoreductase that acts as a caspase-independent mitochondrial effector of apoptotic cell death. Binds to DNA in a sequence-independent manner. May contribute to genotoxin-induced growth arrest.

mRNA Expression by UniProt/SwissProt for AIFM2 Gene

Q9BRQ8-AIFM2_HUMAN
Tissue specificity: Detected in most normal tissues as two transcripts of 1.8 and 4.0 kb in length, respectively. Highly expressed in heart, moderately in liver and skeletal muscles, and expressed at low levels in placenta, lung, kidney, and pancreas. Both transcripts expressed following p53/TP53 induction. The shorter 1.8 kb transcript seems to be the major transcript in EB1 colon cancer cells.
