Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SNCAIP Gene
This gene encodes a protein containing several protein-protein interaction domains, including ankyrin-like repeats, a coiled-coil domain, and an ATP/GTP-binding motif. The encoded protein interacts with alpha-synuclein in neuronal tissue and may play a role in the formation of cytoplasmic inclusions and neurodegeneration. A mutation in this gene has been associated with Parkinson's disease. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms of this gene have been described, but the full-length nature of only two have been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2011]
GeneCards Summary for SNCAIP Gene
SNCAIP (Synuclein, Alpha Interacting Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SNCAIP include synucleinopathy and lrrk2-related parkinson disease. Among its related pathways are CDK-mediated phosphorylation and removal of Cdc6 and Respiratory electron transport, ATP synthesis by chemiosmotic coupling, and heat production by uncoupling proteins.. GO annotations related to this gene include ubiquitin protein ligase binding.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SNCAIP Gene
Isoform 2 inhibits the ubiquitin ligase activity of SIAH1 and inhibits proteasomal degradation of target proteins. Isoform 2 inhibits autoubiquitination and proteasomal degradation of SIAH1, and thereby increases cellular levels of SIAH. Isoform 2 modulates SNCA monoubiquitination by SIAH1.
