Summaries for MOAP1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MOAP1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene was identified by its interaction with apoptosis regulator BAX protein. This protein contains a Bcl-2 homology 3 (BH3)-like motif, which is required for the association with BAX. When overexpressed, this gene has been shown to mediate caspase-dependent apoptosis.

    Quaternary structure:
    • Homodimer. Under normal circumstances, held in an inactive conformation by an intramolecular interaction. Binding to RASSF1 isoform A (RASSF1A) relieves this inhibitory interaction and allows further binding to BAX. Binds also to BCL2 and BCLX. Recruited to the TNFRSF1A and TNFRSF10A complexes in response to their respective cognate ligand, after internalization. Interacts with TRIM39. Interacts with RASSF6 (By similarity).
