Summaries for BNIP1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for BNIP1 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the BCL2/adenovirus E1B 19 kd-interacting protein (BNIP) family. It interacts with the E1B 19 kDa protein, which protects cells from virally-induced cell death. The encoded protein also interacts with E1B 19 kDa-like sequences of BCL2, another apoptotic protector. In addition, this protein is involved in vesicle transport into the endoplasmic reticulum. Alternative splicing of this gene results in four protein products with identical N- and C-termini. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2011]

GeneCards Summary for BNIP1 Gene

BNIP1 (BCL2 Interacting Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Golgi-to-ER retrograde transport and Vesicle-mediated transport. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include SNAP receptor activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for BNIP1 Gene

  • SNARE that may be involved in targeting and fusion of Golgi-derived retrograde transport vesicles with the ER. Required for maintenance of ER network. Implicated in the suppression of cell death. May be involved in mitochondrial autophagy.
