Summaries for GZMA Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for GZMA Gene

  • Cytolytic T lymphocytes (CTL) and natural killer (NK) cells share the remarkable ability to recognize, bind, and lyse specific target cells. They are thought to protect their host by lysing cells bearing on their surface 'nonself' antigens, usually peptides or proteins resulting from infection by intracellular pathogens. The protein described here is a T cell- and natural killer cell-specific serine protease that may function as a common component necessary for lysis of target cells by cytotoxic T lymphocytes and natural killer cells.

GeneCards Summary for GZMA Gene

GZMA (Granzyme A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GZMA include Smallpox and Chilblain Lupus. Among its related pathways are IL-15 Signaling Pathways and their Primary Biological Effects in Different Immune Cell Types and IL12-mediated signaling events. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and serine-type peptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is GZMK.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GZMA Gene

  • Abundant protease in the cytosolic granules of cytotoxic T-cells and NK-cells which activates caspase-independent cell death with morphological features of apoptosis when delivered into the target cell through the immunological synapse. It cleaves after Lys or Arg. Cleaves APEX1 after Lys-31 and destroys its oxidative repair activity. Cleaves the nucleosome assembly protein SET after Lys-189, which disrupts its nucleosome assembly activity and allows the SET complex to translocate into the nucleus to nick and degrade the DNA.

GENATLAS Biochemistry:
cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated granule serine protease 3,Hanuka factor,lymphocyte tryptase 1
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot CatalyticActivity:
Hydrolysis of proteins, including fibronectin, type IV collagen and nucleolin. Preferential cleavage: -Arg- -Xaa-, -Lys- -Xaa- >> -Phe- -Xaa- in small molecule substrates.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function:
Abundant protease in the cytosolic granules of cytotoxic T-cells and NK-cells which activates caspase-independent cell death with morphological features of apoptosis when delivered into the target cell through the immunological synapse. It cleaves after Lys or Arg. Cleaves APEX1 after Lys-31 and destroys its oxidative repair activity. Cleaves the nucleosome assembly protein SET after Lys-189, which disrupts its nucleosome assembly activity and allows the SET complex to translocate into the nucleus to nick and degrade the DNA.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Induction:
Dexamethasone (DEX) induces expression of isoform beta and represses expression of isoform alpha. The alteration in expression is mediated by binding of glucocorticoid receptor to independent promoters adjacent to the alternative first exons of isoform alpha and isoform beta.
