GeneCards Summary for BRE Gene
BRE (Brain And Reproductive Organ-Expressed (TNFRSF1A Modulator)) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and DNA Damage. GO annotations related to this gene include tumor necrosis factor receptor binding and peroxisome targeting sequence binding.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for BRE Gene
Component of the BRCA1-A complex, a complex that specifically recognizes Lys-63-linked ubiquitinated histones H2A and H2AX at DNA lesions sites, leading to target the BRCA1-BARD1 heterodimer to sites of DNA damage at double-strand breaks (DSBs). The BRCA1-A complex also possesses deubiquitinase activity that specifically removes Lys-63-linked ubiquitin on histones H2A and H2AX. In the BRCA1-A complex, it acts as an adapter that bridges the interaction between BABAM1/NBA1 and the rest of the complex, thereby being required for the complex integrity and modulating the E3 ubiquitin ligase activity of the BRCA1-BARD1 heterodimer. Probably also plays a role as a component of the BRISC complex, a multiprotein complex that specifically cleaves Lys-63-linked ubiquitin. May play a role in homeostasis or cellular differentiation in cells of neural, epithelial and germline origins. May also act as a death receptor-associated anti-apoptotic protein, which inhibits the mitochondrial apoptotic pathway. May regulate TNF-alpha signaling through its interactions with TNFRSF1A; however these effects may be indirect.
