Previous GeneCards Identifiers for MCC Gene
This gene is a candidate colorectal tumor suppressor gene that is thought to negatively regulate cell cycle progression. The orthologous gene in the mouse expresses a phosphoprotein associated with the plasma membrane and membrane organelles, and overexpression of the mouse protein inhibits entry into S phase. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for MCC Gene
MCC (Mutated In Colorectal Cancers) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MCC include Colorectal Cancer and Colonic Benign Neoplasm. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is USHBP1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MCC Gene
Candidate for the putative colorectal tumor suppressor gene located at 5q21. Suppresses cell proliferation and the Wnt/b-catenin pathway in colorectal cancer cells. Inhibits DNA binding of b-catenin/TCF/LEF transcription factors. Involved in cell migration independently of RAC1, CDC42 and p21-activated kinase (PAK) activation (PubMed:18591935, PubMed:19555689, PubMed:22480440). Represses the beta-catenin pathway (canonical Wnt signaling pathway) in a CCAR2-dependent manner by sequestering CCAR2 to the cytoplasm, thereby impairing its ability to inhibit SIRT1 which is involved in the deacetylation and negative regulation of beta-catenin (CTNB1) transcriptional activity (PubMed:24824780).
