Summaries for BRAP Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for BRAP Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene was identified by its ability to bind to the nuclear localization signal of BRCA1 and other proteins. It is a cytoplasmic protein which may regulate nuclear targeting by retaining proteins with a nuclear localization signal in the cytoplasm. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for BRAP Gene

BRAP (BRCA1 Associated Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Ras signaling pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleotide binding and nuclear localization sequence binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for BRAP Gene

  • Negatively regulates MAP kinase activation by limiting the formation of Raf/MEK complexes probably by inactivation of the KSR1 scaffold protein. Also acts as a Ras responsive E3 ubiquitin ligase that, on activation of Ras, is modified by auto-polyubiquitination resulting in the release of inhibition of Raf/MEK complex formation. May also act as a cytoplasmic retention protein with a role in regulating nuclear transport.
