Summaries for AIP Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for AIP Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a receptor for aryl hydrocarbons and a ligand-activated transcription factor. The encoded protein is found in the cytoplasm as part of a multiprotein complex, but upon binding of ligand is transported to the nucleus. This protein can regulate the expression of many xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes. Also, the encoded protein can bind specifically to and inhibit the activity of hepatitis B virus. Three transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2014]

GeneCards Summary for AIP Gene

AIP (Aryl Hydrocarbon Receptor Interacting Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with AIP include pituitary adenoma, growth hormone-secreting and pituitary adenoma, prolactin-secreting. Among its related pathways are AhR pathway (WikiPathways) and AHR Pathway (Qiagen). GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor binding and transcription coactivator activity. An important paralog of this gene is AIPL1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for AIP Gene

  • May play a positive role in AHR-mediated (aromatic hydrocarbon receptor) signaling, possibly by influencing its receptivity for ligand and/or its nuclear targeting.

  • Cellular negative regulator of the hepatitis B virus (HBV) X protein.

  • ACTH-secreting pituitary adenoma (ASPA) [MIM:219090]: A pituitary adenoma resulting in excessive production of adrenocorticotropic hormone. This leads to hypersecretion of cortisol by the adrenal glands and ACTH-dependent Cushing syndrome. Clinical manifestations of Cushing syndrome include facial and truncal obesity, abdominal striae, muscular weakness, osteoporosis, arterial hypertension, diabetes. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17360484}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Pituitary adenoma, growth hormone-secreting, 1 (PAGH1) [MIM:102200]: A growth hormone-secreting, benign neoplasm of the anterior pituitary gland, also known as somatotropinoma. It clinically results in acromegaly, a condition characterized by coarse facial features, protruding jaw, and enlarged extremities. Excessive production of growth hormone in children or adolescents before the closure of epiphyses causes gigantism, a condition characterized by abnormally tall stature. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17244780, ECO:0000269 PubMed:17299063, ECO:0000269 PubMed:17360484, ECO:0000269 PubMed:18410548}.
