Previous GeneCards Identifiers for PMAIP1 Gene
This gene belongs to a pro-apoptotic subfamily within the BCL-2 protein family, referred to as the BCL-2 homology domain 3 (BH3)-only subfamily, which determine whether a cell commits to apoptosis. In response to death-inducing stimuli, BH3-only members inhibit the anti-apoptotic BCL-2 family members, which under steady-state conditions keep the multi-BH domain proteins BAX and BAK, in an inactive state.

GeneCards Summary for PMAIP1 Gene
PMAIP1 (Phorbol-12-Myristate-13-Acetate-Induced Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PMAIP1 include Adult T-Cell Leukemia and Mantle Cell Lymphoma. Among its related pathways are DNA Damage Response (only ATM dependent) and TP53 Regulates Transcription of Cell Death Genes.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for PMAIP1 Gene
Promotes activation of caspases and apoptosis. Promotes mitochondrial membrane changes and efflux of apoptogenic proteins from the mitochondria. Contributes to p53/TP53-dependent apoptosis after radiation exposure. Promotes proteasomal degradation of MCL1. Competes with BAK1 for binding to MCL1 and can displace BAK1 from its binding site on MCL1 (By similarity). Competes with BIM/BCL2L11 for binding to MCL1 and can displace BIM/BCL2L11 from its binding site on MCL1.
