Previous GeneCards Identifiers for MAPRE1 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene was first identified by its binding to the APC protein which is often mutated in familial and sporadic forms of colorectal cancer. This protein localizes to microtubules, especially the growing ends, in interphase cells. During mitosis, the protein is associated with the centrosomes and spindle microtubules. The protein also associates with components of the dynactin complex and the intermediate chain of cytoplasmic dynein. Because of these associations, it is thought that this protein is involved in the regulation of microtubule structures and chromosome stability. This gene is a member of the RP/EB family.

GeneCards Summary for MAPRE1 Gene
MAPRE1 (Microtubule Associated Protein RP/EB Family Member 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MAPRE1 include Familial Adenomatous Polyposis and Pediatric Ependymoma. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and Regulation of PLK1 Activity at G2/M Transition. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein C-terminus binding. An important paralog of this gene is MAPRE3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for MAPRE1 Gene
Plus-end tracking protein (+TIP) that binds to the plus-end of microtubules and regulates the dynamics of the microtubule cytoskeleton (PubMed:12388762, PubMed:16109370, PubMed:19632184, PubMed:21646404, PubMed:28726242, PubMed:28814570). Promotes cytoplasmic microtubule nucleation and elongation (PubMed:12388762, PubMed:16109370, PubMed:19632184, PubMed:21646404, PubMed:28726242, PubMed:28814570). May be involved in spindle function by stabilizing microtubules and anchoring them at centrosomes (PubMed:12388762). Also acts as a regulator of minus-end microtubule organization: interacts with the complex formed by AKAP9 and PDE4DIP, leading to recruit CAMSAP2 to the Golgi apparatus, thereby tethering non-centrosomal minus-end microtubules to the Golgi, an important step for polarized cell movement (PubMed:28814570). Promotes elongation of CAMSAP2-decorated microtubule stretches on the minus-end of microtubules (PubMed:28814570). Acts as a regulator of autophagosome transport via interaction with CAMSAP2 (PubMed:28726242). May play a role in cell migration (By similarity).
