Previous Symbols for MAGEA1 Gene
This gene is a member of the MAGEA gene family. The members of this family encode proteins with 50 to 80% sequence identity to each other. The promoters and first exons of the MAGEA genes show considerable variability, suggesting that the existence of this gene family enables the same function to be expressed under different transcriptional controls. The MAGEA genes are clustered at chromosomal location Xq28. They have been implicated in some hereditary disorders, such as dyskeratosis congenita. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for MAGEA1 Gene
MAGEA1 (Melanoma Antigen Family A1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MAGEA1 include melanoma and colorectal cancer. Among its related pathways are Notch signaling pathway (KEGG). GO annotations related to this gene include histone deacetylase binding. An important paralog of this gene is MAGED1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MAGEA1 Gene
May be involved in transcriptional regulation through interaction with SNW1 and recruiting histone deactelyase HDAC1. May inhibit notch intracellular domain (NICD) transactivation. May play a role in embryonal development and tumor transformation or aspects of tumor progression. Antigen recognized on a melanoma by autologous cytolytic T-lymphocytes.
