Summaries for BAG5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for BAG5 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the BAG1-related protein family. BAG1 is an anti-apoptotic protein that functions through interactions with a variety of cell apoptosis and growth related proteins including BCL-2, Raf-protein kinase, steroid hormone receptors, growth factor receptors and members of the heat shock protein 70 kDa family. This protein contains a BAG domain near the C-terminus, which could bind and inhibit the chaperone activity of Hsc70/Hsp70. Three transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for BAG5 Gene

BAG5 (BCL2-Associated Athanogene 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with BAG5 include brain cancer. GO annotations related to this gene include ubiquitin protein ligase binding and chaperone binding. An important paralog of this gene is BAG4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for BAG5 Gene

  • Inhibits both auto-ubiquitination of PARK2 and ubiquitination of target proteins by PARK2 (By similarity). May function as a nucleotide exchange factor for HSP/HSP70, promoting ADP release, and activating Hsp70-mediated refolding.
