The protein encoded by this gene can hydrolyze substrates such as AMP-morpholidate, AMP-N-alanine methyl ester, AMP-alpha-acetyl lysine methyl ester, and AMP-NH2. The encoded protein interacts with these substrates via a histidine triad motif, which is part of the loop that binds to the substrate. This gene has been found to be a tumor suppressing gene. Several transcript variants, but only one of them protein-coding, have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2012]
GeneCards Summary for HINT1 Gene
HINT1 (Histidine Triad Nucleotide Binding Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HINT1 include neuromyotonia and axonal neuropathy, autosomal recessive and axonal neuropathy. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleotide binding and protein kinase C binding. An important paralog of this gene is HINT2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HINT1 Gene
Hydrolyzes purine nucleotide phosphoramidates with a single phosphate group, including adenosine 5monophosphoramidate (AMP-NH2), adenosine 5monophosphomorpholidate (AMP-morpholidate) and guanosine 5monophosphomorpholidate (GMP-morpholidate). Hydrolyzes lysyl-AMP (AMP-N-epsilon-(N-alpha-acetyl lysine methyl ester)) generated by lysine tRNA ligase, as well as Met-AMP, His-AMP and Asp-AMP, lysyl-GMP (GMP-N-epsilon-(N-alpha-acetyl lysine methyl ester)) and AMP-N-alanine methyl ester. Can also convert adenosine 5-O-phosphorothioate and guanosine 5-O-phosphorothioate to the corresponding nucleoside 5-O-phosphates with concomitant release of hydrogen sulfide. In addition, functions as scaffolding protein that modulates transcriptional activation by the LEF1/TCF1-CTNNB1 complex and by the complex formed with MITF and CTNNB1. Modulates p53/TP53 levels and p53/TP53-mediated apoptosis. Modulates proteasomal degradation of target proteins by the SCF (SKP2-CUL1-F-box protein) E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complex.
