Previous GeneCards Identifiers for FNIP1 Gene
This gene encodes a protein that binds to the tumor suppressor protein folliculin and to AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK). The encoded protein participates in the regulation of cellular metabolism and nutrient sensing by modulating the AMPK and target of rapamycin signaling pathways. This gene has a closely related paralog that encodes a protein with similar binding activities. Both related proteins also associate with the molecular chaperone heat shock protein-90 (Hsp90) and negatively regulate its ATPase activity and facilitate its association with folliculin.

GeneCards Summary for FNIP1 Gene
FNIP1 (Folliculin Interacting Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FNIP1 include Birt-Hogg-Dube Syndrome and Pleural Disease. Among its related pathways are mTOR signaling pathway (KEGG). Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is FNIP2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FNIP1 Gene
Acts as a co-chaperone of HSP90AA1. Inhibits the ATPase activity of HSP90AA1 leading to reduction in its chaperone activity. Facilitates the binding of client protein FLCN to HSP90AA1. Competes with the activating co-chaperone AHSA1 for binding to HSP90AA1, thereby providing a reciprocal regulatory mechanism for chaperoning of client proteins (PubMed:27353360). May be involved in energy and/or nutrient sensing through the AMPK and mTOR signaling pathways (PubMed:17028174). May regulate phosphorylation of RPS6KB1 (PubMed:18663353).
