Previous GeneCards Identifiers for FATE1 Gene
This gene encodes a cancer-testis antigen that is highly expressed in hepatocellular carcinomas and other tumors and weakly expressed in normal tissues except testis. The protein is strongly expressed in spermatogonia, primary spermatocytes, and Sertoli cells in seminiferous tubules. This protein may have a role in the control of early testicular differentiation and cell proliferation. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2010]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FATE1 Gene
Involved in the regulation of endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-mitochondria coupling. Negatively regulates the ER-mitochondria distance and Ca(2+) transfer from ER to mitochondria possibly implicating it in the regulation of apoptosis (PubMed:27402544). May collaborate with RNF183 to restrain BIK protein levels thus regulating apoptotic signaling (PubMed:26567849).
