Previous GeneCards Identifiers for HIP1 Gene
The product of this gene is a membrane-associated protein that functions in clathrin-mediated endocytosis and protein trafficking within the cell. The encoded protein binds to the huntingtin protein in the brain; this interaction is lost in Huntington's disease. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HIP1 Gene
Plays a role in clathrin-mediated endocytosis and trafficking (PubMed:11532990, PubMed:11577110, PubMed:11889126). Involved in regulating AMPA receptor trafficking in the central nervous system in an NMDA-dependent manner (By similarity). Regulates presynaptic nerve terminal activity (By similarity). Enhances androgen receptor (AR)-mediated transcription (PubMed:16027218). May act as a proapoptotic protein that induces cell death by acting through the intrinsic apoptosis pathway (PubMed:11007801). Binds 3-phosphoinositides (via ENTH domain) (PubMed:14732715). May act through the ENTH domain to promote cell survival by stabilizing receptor tyrosine kinases following ligand-induced endocytosis (PubMed:14732715). May play a functional role in the cell filament networks (PubMed:18790740). May be required for differentiation, proliferation, and/or survival of somatic and germline progenitors (PubMed:11007801, PubMed:12163454).
