Summaries for EPAS1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for EPAS1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a transcription factor involved in the induction of genes regulated by oxygen, which is induced as oxygen levels fall. The encoded protein contains a basic-helix-loop-helix domain protein dimerization domain as well as a domain found in proteins in signal transduction pathways which respond to oxygen levels. Mutations in this gene are associated with erythrocytosis familial type 4. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2009]

GeneCards Summary for EPAS1 Gene

EPAS1 (Endothelial PAS Domain Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with EPAS1 include erythrocytosis, familial, 4 and sporadic pheochromocytoma. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Cellular Senescence. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and protein heterodimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is HIF3A.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for EPAS1 Gene

  • Transcription factor involved in the induction of oxygen regulated genes. Binds to core DNA sequence 5-[AG]CGTG-3 within the hypoxia response element (HRE) of target gene promoters. Regulates the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression and seems to be implicated in the development of blood vessels and the tubular system of lung. May also play a role in the formation of the endothelium that gives rise to the blood brain barrier. Potent activator of the Tie-2 tyrosine kinase expression. Activation seems to require recruitment of transcriptional coactivators such as CREBPB and probably EP300. Interaction with redox regulatory protein APEX seems to activate CTAD.

Post-translational modifications for EPAS1 Gene

  • In normoxia, is hydroxylated on Asn-847 by HIF1AN thus probably abrogating interaction with CREBBP and EP300 and preventing transcriptional activation.
  • In normoxia, is probably hydroxylated on Pro-405 and Pro-531 by EGLN1/PHD1, EGLN2/PHD2 and/or EGLN3/PHD3. The hydroxylated prolines promote interaction with VHL, initiating rapid ubiquitination and subsequent proteasomal degradation. Under hypoxia, proline hydroxylation is impaired and ubiquitination is attenuated, resulting in stabilization (By similarity).
  • Phosphorylated on multiple sites in the CTAD.
  • The iron and 2-oxoglutarate dependent 3-hydroxylation of asparagine is (S) stereospecific within HIF CTAD domains.
  • Modification sites at PhosphoSitePlus
  • Modification sites at neXtProt
