Summaries for PEG3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PEG3 Gene

  • In human, ZIM2 and PEG3 are treated as two distinct genes though they share multiple 5' exons and a common promoter and both genes are paternally expressed (PMID:15203203). Alternative splicing events connect their shared 5' exons either with the remaining 4 exons unique to ZIM2, or with the remaining 2 exons unique to PEG3. In contrast, in other mammals ZIM2 does not undergo imprinting and, in mouse, cow, and likely other mammals as well, the ZIM2 and PEG3 genes do not share exons. Human PEG3 protein belongs to the Kruppel C2H2-type zinc finger protein family. PEG3 may play a role in cell proliferation and p53-mediated apoptosis. PEG3 has also shown tumor suppressor activity and tumorigenesis in glioma and ovarian cells. Alternative splicing of this PEG3 gene results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms.

GeneCards Summary for PEG3 Gene

PEG3 (Paternally Expressed 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PEG3 include undifferentiated embryonal sarcoma of the liver and embryonal sarcoma. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and Gene Expression. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and sequence-specific DNA binding RNA polymerase II transcription factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is ZNF729.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PEG3 Gene

  • Induces apoptosis in cooperation with SIAH1A. Acts as a mediator between p53/TP53 and BAX in a neuronal death pathway that is activated by DNA damage. Acts synergistically with TRAF2 and inhibits TNF induced apoptosis through activation of NF-kappa-B (By similarity). Possesses a tumor suppressing activity in glioma cells.
