Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Involved in several processes, including intrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway; negative regulation of NIK/NF-kappaB signaling; and positive regulation of protein import into nucleus. Localizes to several cellular components, including the apoptosome; nuclear envelope; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Used to study hepatocellular carcinoma. Is expressed in several structures, including cerebral cortex ventricular layer; genitourinary system; heart; liver; and lung. Orthologous to human UACA (uveal autoantigen with coiled-coil domains and ankyrin repeats).
