Summaries for FHIT Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FHIT Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a P1-P3-bis(5'-adenosyl) triphosphate hydrolase involved in purine metabolism. This gene encompasses the common fragile site FRA3B on chromosome 3, where carcinogen-induced damage can lead to translocations and aberrant transcripts. In fact, aberrant transcripts from this gene have been found in about half of all esophageal, stomach, and colon carcinomas. The encoded protein is also a tumor suppressor, as loss of its activity results in replication stress and DNA damage. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2017]

GeneCards Summary for FHIT Gene

FHIT (Fragile Histidine Triad) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FHIT include Renal Cell Carcinoma, Nonpapillary and Hereditary Renal Cell Carcinoma. Among its related pathways are Pyrimidine metabolism (KEGG) and Glioma. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and hydrolase activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FHIT Gene

  • Cleaves P(1)-P(3)-bis(5-adenosyl) triphosphate (Ap3A) to yield AMP and ADP. Can also hydrolyze P(1)-P(4)-bis(5-adenosyl) tetraphosphate (Ap4A), but has extremely low activity with ATP. Modulates transcriptional activation by CTNNB1 and thereby contributes to regulate the expression of genes essential for cell proliferation and survival, such as CCND1 and BIRC5. Plays a role in the induction of apoptosis via SRC and AKT1 signaling pathways. Inhibits MDM2-mediated proteasomal degradation of p53/TP53 and thereby plays a role in p53/TP53-mediated apoptosis. Induction of apoptosis depends on the ability of FHIT to bind P(1)-P(3)-bis(5-adenosyl) triphosphate or related compounds, but does not require its catalytic activity, it may in part come from the mitochondrial form, which sensitizes the low-affinity Ca(2+) transporters, enhancing mitochondrial calcium uptake. Functions as tumor suppressor.

  • Note=A chromosomal aberration involving FHIT has been found in a lymphoblastoid cell line established from a family with renal cell carcinoma and thyroid carcinoma. Translocation t(3;8)(p14.2;q24.1) with RNF139. Although the 3p14.2 breakpoint has been shown to interrupt FHIT in its 5-prime non-coding region, it is unlikely that FHIT is causally related to renal or other malignancies. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15007172}.
  • Note=Associated with digestive tract cancers. Numerous tumor types are found to have aberrant forms of FHIT protein due to deletions in a coding region of chromosome 3p14.2 including the fragile site locus FRA3B. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15007172}.
