GeneCards Summary for MACROD1 Gene
MACROD1 (MACRO Domain Containing 1) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include deacetylase activity and hydrolase activity, acting on glycosyl bonds. An important paralog of this gene is MACROD2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MACROD1 Gene
Removes ADP-ribose from glutamate residues in proteins bearing a single ADP-ribose moiety. Inactive towards proteins bearing poly-ADP-ribose. Deacetylates O-acetyl-ADP ribose, a signaling molecule generated by the deacetylation of acetylated lysine residues in histones and other proteins. Plays a role in estrogen signaling. Binds to androgen receptor (AR) and amplifies the transactivation function of AR in response to androgen. May play an important role in carcinogenesis and/or progression of hormone-dependent cancers by feed-forward mechanism that activates ESR1 transactivation. Could be an ESR1 coactivator, providing a positive feedback regulatory loop for ESR1 signal transduction. Could be involved in invasive growth by down-regulating CDH1 in endometrial cancer cells. Enhances ESR1-mediated transcription activity.
