Summaries for EBAG9 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for EBAG9 Gene

  • This gene was identified as an estrogen-responsive gene. Regulation of transcription by estrogen is mediated by estrogen receptor, which binds to the estrogen-responsive element found in the 5'-flanking region of this gene. The encoded protein is a tumor-associated antigen that is expressed at high frequency in a variety of cancers. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. A pseudogene of this gene has been defined on chromosome 10. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2013]

GeneCards Summary for EBAG9 Gene

EBAG9 (Estrogen Receptor Binding Site Associated, Antigen, 9) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with EBAG9 include Placental Abruption and Bile Duct Carcinoma. Among its related pathways are Translational Control. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include peptidase activator activity involved in apoptotic process.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for EBAG9 Gene

  • May participate in suppression of cell proliferation and induces apoptotic cell death through activation of interleukin-1-beta converting enzyme (ICE)-like proteases.

    • May serve as a prognostic marker for cancers such as adenocarcinomas of the lung and breast cancers. It is present and overexpressed in many patients suffering from breast carcinomas, its level of expression correlates with tumor grade, suggesting that it may be involved in cancer immune escape. According to PubMed:12672804, it is however not directly a tumor-associated antigen, but it rather modulates surface expression of tumor-associated O-linked glycan Tn when it is overexpressed, suggesting that it contributes indirectly to the antigenicity of tumor cells.
