Literature associating HIP1 and Huntington's disease
Huntingtin interacting protein 1; Plays a role in clathrin-mediated endocytosis and trafficking. Involved in regulating AMPA receptor trafficking in the central nervous system in an NMDA-dependent manner (By similarity). Regulates presynaptic nerve terminal activity (By similarity). Enhances androgen receptor (AR)-mediated transcription. May act as a proapoptotic protein that induces cell death by acting through the intrinsic apoptosis pathway. Binds 3-phosphoinositides (via ENTH domain). May act through the ENTH domain to promote cell survival by stabilizing receptor tyrosine kinases following ligand-induced endocytosis. May play a functional role in the cell filament networks. May be required for differentiation, proliferation, and/or survival of somatic and germline progenitors; Belongs to the SLA2 family.
Synonyms: HIP1, HIP1p, hHIP1, B4DK46, B4DYD7 ...
