Previous GeneCards Identifiers for NME1 Gene
This gene (NME1) was identified because of its reduced mRNA transcript levels in highly metastatic cells. Nucleoside diphosphate kinase (NDK) exists as a hexamer composed of 'A' (encoded by this gene) and 'B' (encoded by NME2) isoforms. Mutations in this gene have been identified in aggressive neuroblastomas. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. Co-transcription of this gene and the neighboring downstream gene (NME2) generates naturally-occurring transcripts (NME1-NME2), which encodes a fusion protein comprised of sequence sharing identity with each individual gene product.

GeneCards Summary for NME1 Gene
NME1 (NME/NM23 Nucleoside Diphosphate Kinase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NME1 include Neuroblastoma and Larynx Cancer. Among its related pathways are superpathway of pyrimidine deoxyribonucleotides de novo biosynthesis and Pyrimidine metabolism (KEGG). Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include GTP binding. An important paralog of this gene is NME1-NME2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NME1 Gene
Major role in the synthesis of nucleoside triphosphates other than ATP. The ATP gamma phosphate is transferred to the NDP beta phosphate via a ping-pong mechanism, using a phosphorylated active-site intermediate. Possesses nucleoside-diphosphate kinase, serine/threonine-specific protein kinase, geranyl and farnesyl pyrophosphate kinase, histidine protein kinase and 3-5 exonuclease activities. Involved in cell proliferation, differentiation and development, signal transduction, G protein-coupled receptor endocytosis, and gene expression. Required for neural development including neural patterning and cell fate determination. During GZMA-mediated cell death, works in concert with TREX1. NME1 nicks one strand of DNA and TREX1 removes bases from the free 3 end to enhance DNA damage and prevent DNA end reannealing and rapid repair.
