Previous GeneCards Identifiers for TIA1 Gene
The product encoded by this gene is a member of a RNA-binding protein family and possesses nucleolytic activity against cytotoxic lymphocyte (CTL) target cells. It has been suggested that this protein may be involved in the induction of apoptosis as it preferentially recognizes poly(A) homopolymers and induces DNA fragmentation in CTL targets. The major granule-associated species is a 15-kDa protein that is thought to be derived from the carboxyl terminus of the 40-kDa product by proteolytic processing. Alternative splicing resulting in different isoforms of this gene product has been described in the literature. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for TIA1 Gene
TIA1 (TIA1 Cytotoxic Granule-Associated RNA Binding Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TIA1 include welander distal myopathy and natural killer cell leukemia. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Interleukin-3, 5 and GM-CSF signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and nucleotide binding. An important paralog of this gene is TIAL1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TIA1 Gene
Involved in alternative pre-RNA splicing and regulation of mRNA translation by binding to AU-rich elements (AREs) located in mRNA 3 untranslated regions (3 UTRs). Possesses nucleolytic activity against cytotoxic lymphocyte target cells. May be involved in apoptosis.
