Previous GeneCards Identifiers for CIAPIN1 Gene
CIAPIN1 is a cytokine-induced inhibitor of apoptosis with no relation to apoptosis regulatory molecules of the BCL2 (MIM 151430) or CASP (see MIM 147678) families. Expression of CIAPIN1 is dependent on growth factor stimulation (Shibayama et al., 2004 [PubMed 14970183]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
GeneCards Summary for CIAPIN1 Gene
CIAPIN1 (Cytokine Induced Apoptosis Inhibitor 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Cytosolic iron-sulfur cluster assembly. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include methyltransferase activity and iron-sulfur cluster binding.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CIAPIN1 Gene
Has anti-apoptotic effects in the cell. Involved in negative control of cell death upon cytokine withdrawal. Promotes development of hematopoietic cells (By similarity). Component of the cytosolic iron-sulfur (Fe-S) protein assembly (CIA) machinery. Required for the maturation of extramitochondrial Fe-S proteins. Part of an electron transfer chain functioning in an early step of cytosolic Fe-S biogenesis. Electrons are transferred to the Fe-S cluster from NADPH via the FAD- and FMN-containing protein NDOR1.
