WDR26 [ENSP00000408108]

Myocardial ischemic preconditioning up-regulated protein 2; G-beta-like protein involved in cell signal transduction. Acts as a negative regulator in MAPK signaling pathway. Functions as a scaffolding protein to promote G beta:gamma- mediated PLCB2 plasma membrane translocation and subsequent activation in leukocytes. Acts as a negative regulator of the canonical Wnt signaling pathway through preventing ubiquitination of beta-catenin CTNNB1 by the beta-catenin destruction complex, thus negatively regulating CTNNB1 degradation. Serves as a scaffold to coordinate PI3K/AKT pathway-driven cell growth and migration. Protects cells from oxidative stress-induced apoptosis via the down-regulation of AP-1 transcriptional activity as well as by inhibiting cytochrome c release from mitochondria. Protects also cells by promoting hypoxia- mediated autophagy and mitophagy (By similarity); WD repeat domain containing
