GeneCards Summary for WWTR1 Gene

WWTR1 (WW Domain Containing Transcription Regulator 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with WWTR1 include barth syndrome and epithelioid hemangioendothelioma. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Disease. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and transcription corepressor activity. An important paralog of this gene is YAP1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for WWTR1 Gene

  • Transcriptional coactivator which acts as a downstream regulatory target in the Hippo signaling pathway that plays a pivotal role in organ size control and tumor suppression by restricting proliferation and promoting apoptosis. The core of this pathway is composed of a kinase cascade wherein STK3/MST2 and STK4/MST1, in complex with its regulatory protein SAV1, phosphorylates and activates LATS1/2 in complex with its regulatory protein MOB1, which in turn phosphorylates and inactivates YAP1 oncoprotein and WWTR1/TAZ. WWTR1 enhances PAX8 and NKX2-1/TTF1-dependent gene activation. Regulates the nuclear accumulation of SMADS and has a key role in coupling them to the transcriptional machinery such as the mediator complex. Regulates embryonic stem-cell self-renewal, promotes cell proliferation and epithelial-mesenchymal transition.

Post-translational modifications for WWTR1 Gene

  • Phosphorylated by LATS2 and STK3/MST2. Phosphorylation by LATS2 results in creation of 14-3-3 binding sites, retention in the cytoplasm, and functional inactivation. Phosphorylation results in the inhibition of transcriptional coactivation through YWHAZ-mediated nuclear export.
