Background: Interleukin-1β (IL-1β), one of the major caspase-1 targets, is a multifunctional cytokine that is involved in a host of immune and proinflammatory responses (1). It is produced primarily by activated monocytes and macrophages. It signals through various adaptor proteins and kinases that lead to activation of numerous downstream targets (2-6). Human IL-1β is synthesized as a 31 kDa precursor. To gain activity, the precursor must be cleaved by caspase-1 between Asp116 and Ala117 to yield a 17 kDa mature form (7,8). Detection of the 17 kDa mature form of IL-1β is a good indicator of caspase-1 activity.

Background: The ephrin receptor B2 (EphB2) is an ephrin family receptor tyrosine kinase that plays an important role in regulating growth and development of multiple tissues and organs (1,2). The EphB2 transmembrane receptor protein contains a kinase domain, a PDZ motif, and a SAM domain within a conserved cytoplasmic domain. A ligand binding domain, a cysteine-rich domain, and fibronectin type III repeats comprise the conserved EphB2 extracellular domain (3). EphB2 binds with high affinity to ephrin B ligands, and to some ephrin A proteins, to initiate bidirectional signaling between neighboring cells (1,2). Upon binding, EphB2-Ephrin B2 dimers form a heterotetramer and position the receptor-ligand complex on the cell membrane to facilitate bidirectional signal transduction (3). In addition to associating with ephrin ligands, EphB2 also regulates a number of biological processes through interaction with focal adhesion kinase (FAK), NMDA receptor (NMDAR), the Rac1 guanine nucleotide exchange factor Tiam1, and p21-activated kinase (PAK1) (4-7). While some studies support a role for EphB2 as a pro-oncogenic kinase, other research suggests that EphB2 acts as a tumor suppressor (1,2,4,8).

Background: Peroxin-5 (PEX5) is the shuttle receptor that delivers proteins to peroxisomes (1). In the cytosol, PEX5 binds to the peroxisomal targeting signal 1 (PTS1), a short peptide sequence present at the extreme C termini of newly synthesized peroxisomal matrix proteins. The PEX5-cargo complex interacts with the peroxisomal docking/translocation machinery on the peroxisomal membrane, where the cargo is released into the organelle matrix. During this process, PEX5 is monoubiquitinated at a conserved cysteine residue, and the ubiquitin-PEX5 conjugate is released from the organelle into the cytosol, where PEX5 is deubiquitinated and ready the next round of targeting (2,3).

Background: PCPB2 (also known as hnRNP E2) is an RNA-binding protein that interacts in a sequence-specific fashion with single-stranded poly (rC). Through their poly(rC)-binding ability, PCBPs regulate mRNA stability and translation (1,2). PCBP2 is an iron chaperone; it delivers iron to ferritin for storage and mediates metalation of certain iron-containing proteins (3-5). PCBP2 interacts with the iron importer DMT1 (divalent metal transporter 1) and the iron exporter FPN1 (ferroportin 1) and regulates their activities (6,7). PCBP2 is induced by viral infection and targets MAVS for polyubiquitination and degradation (8-10). Recent reports demonstrate that it is involved in Hippo signaling, miRNA processing, immune suppression, and cancer (11-15).

Background: The Syk family protein tyrosine kinase Zap-70 is expressed in T and NK cells and plays a critical role in mediating T cell activation in response to T cell receptor (TCR) engagement (1). Following TCR engagement, Zap-70 is rapidly phosphorylated on several tyrosine residues through autophosphorylation and transphosphorylation by the Src family tyrosine kinase Lck (2-6). Tyrosine phosphorylation correlates with increased Zap-70 kinase activity and downstream signaling events. Expression of Zap-70 is correlated with disease progression and survival in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (7,8).

Background: CD14 is a leucine-rich repeat-containing pattern recognition receptor with expression largely restricted to the monocyte/macrophage cell lineage (1). Research studies have shown that CD14 is a bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) binding glycoprotein, expressed as either a GPI-linked membrane protein or a soluble plasma protein (2). LPS induces an upregulation of GPI-linked CD14 expression, which facilitates TLR4 signaling and macrophage activation in response to bacterial infection (3-5).

Background: Bruton's tyrosine kinase (Btk) is a member of the Btk/Tec family of cytoplasmic tyrosine kinases. Like other Btk family members, it contains a pleckstrin homology (PH) domain and Src homology SH3 and SH2 domains. Btk plays an important role in B cell development (1,2). Activation of B cells by various ligands is accompanied by Btk membrane translocation mediated by its PH domain binding to phosphatidylinositol-3,4,5-trisphosphate (3-5). The membrane-localized Btk is active and associated with transient phosphorylation of two tyrosine residues, Tyr551 and Tyr223. Tyr551 in the activation loop is transphosphorylated by the Src family tyrosine kinases, leading to autophosphorylation at Tyr223 within the SH3 domain, which is necessary for full activation (6,7). The activation of Btk is negatively regulated by PKCβ through phosphorylation of Btk at Ser180, which results in reduced membrane recruitment, transphosphorylation, and subsequent activation (8). The PKC inhibitory signal is likely to be a key determinant of the B cell receptor signaling threshold to maintain optimal Btk activity (8).

Background: Programmed cell death 1 ligand 2 (PD-L2, B7-DC, CD273) is a member of the B7 family of cell surface ligands that regulate T-cell activation and immune responses (1,2). PD-L2 binds the PD-1 transmembrane receptor and inhibits T-cell activation. PD-L2 was discovered following a search for novel B7 protein homologs and was later shown to be expressed by activated dendritic cells, macrophages, and T-cells (1,3). Similar in structure to related B7 family members, PD-L2 protein contains extracellular IgV and IgC2 domains, a transmembrane domain, and a short, cytoplasmic region. Research studies demonstrate that PD-L2 is expressed in several tumor types, including lung cancer, renal cell carcinoma, melanoma, Hodgkin's lymphoma and primary mediastinal large B-cell lymphoma (4-7).

Background: Cadherins are a superfamily of transmembrane glycoproteins that contain cadherin repeats of approximately 100 residues in their extracellular domain. Cadherins mediate calcium-dependent cell-cell adhesion and play critical roles in normal tissue development (1). The classic cadherin subfamily includes N-, P-, R-, B-, and E-cadherins, as well as about ten other members that are found in adherens junctions, a cellular structure near the apical surface of polarized epithelial cells. The cytoplasmic domain of classical cadherins interacts with β-catenin, γ-catenin (also called plakoglobin), and p120 catenin. β-catenin and γ-catenin associate with α-catenin, which links the cadherin-catenin complex to the actin cytoskeleton (1,2). While β- and γ-catenin play structural roles in the junctional complex, p120 regulates cadherin adhesive activity and trafficking (1-4). Investigators consider E-cadherin an active suppressor of invasion and growth of many epithelial cancers (1-3). Research studies indicate that cancer cells have upregulated N-cadherin in addition to loss of E-cadherin. This change in cadherin expression is called the "cadherin switch." N-cadherin cooperates with the FGF receptor, leading to overexpression of MMP-9 and cellular invasion (3). Research studies have shown that in endothelial cells, VE-cadherin signaling, expression, and localization correlate with vascular permeability and tumor angiogenesis (5,6). Investigators have also demonstrated that expression of P-cadherin, which is normally present in epithelial cells, is also altered in ovarian and other human cancers (7,8).

Background: Bcl-2 exerts a survival function in response to a wide range of apoptotic stimuli through inhibition of mitochondrial cytochrome c release (1). It has been implicated in modulating mitochondrial calcium homeostasis and proton flux (2). Several phosphorylation sites have been identified within Bcl-2 including Thr56, Ser70, Thr74, and Ser87 (3). It has been suggested that these phosphorylation sites may be targets of the ASK1/MKK7/JNK1 pathway and that phosphorylation of Bcl-2 may be a marker for mitotic events (4,5). Mutation of Bcl-2 at Thr56 or Ser87 inhibits its anti-apoptotic activity during glucocorticoid-induced apoptosis of T lymphocytes (6). Interleukin-3 and JNK-induced Bcl-2 phosphorylation at Ser70 may be required for its enhanced anti-apoptotic functions (7).

Background: Sox9 is a transcription factor with an HMG-box DNA binding domain that has homology to the HMG domain of the mammalian testis-determining factor, SRY (1). Sox9 regulates several important processes during embryonic development including chondrogenesis, during which it contributes to skeletal formation and digit specification (2,3). Sox9 also coordinates with steroidogenic factor-1 to direct Sertoli cell-specific expression of anti-Mullerian hormone during embryogenesis, thereby contributing to male sex determination (4). In addition, Sox9 is reportedly involved in the maintenance of adult stem cell populations, including multipotent neural stem cells (5), hair follicle stem cells (6), and mammary stem cells (7). Recent interest has focused on the role of Sox9 in tumor biology. For example, research studies have shown that Sox9 expression in lung adenocarcinoma induces a mesenchymal phenotype in tumor cells (8). Other research studies have shown that YAP1 induced upregulation of Sox9 confers cancer stem cell like properties on esophageal cancer cells (9). Moreover, Sox9 expression has been linked with several other tumor types including ovarian, prostate, and pancreatic malignancies (10-12).

Background: Transferrin receptor 1 (CD71, TFRC) is a type II transmembrane receptor and carrier protein responsible for the uptake of cellular iron through receptor-mediated endocytosis (1). Neutral pH at the cell surface promotes binding of the iron-binding glycoprotein transferrin (Tf) to the CD71 receptor. The receptor-ligand complex enters the cell through receptor-mediated endocytosis and is internalized into an endosome. Relatively lower endosomal pH leads to a change in the local charge environment surrounding the iron-transferrin binding site and results in the release of iron (2). The receptor-ligand complex is recycled to the cell surface where transferrin dissociates from the CD71 receptor (2). Ubiquitously expressed transferrin receptor is continuously recycled and undergoes clathrin-mediated endocytosis regardless of ligand binding state. The interaction between receptor and ligand has been studied in detail. The helical domain of CD71 directly interacts with the transferrin C-lobe and induces a conformation change in Tf to facilitate the transport process (3). Interaction between the receptor CD71 and transferrin is mediated by the membrane protein hemochromatosis (HFE). HFE binds the α-helical domain of CD71, blocking formation of the CD71-transferrin complex and inhibiting iron uptake (4,5). In addition to binding transferrin, CD71 also interacts with H-ferritin at the cell surface and transports this intracellular iron storage protein to cellular endosomes and lysosomes (6). Additional studies indicate that the transferrin receptor is an evolutionarily conserved receptor for a number or arenaviruses and at least one retrovirus (7,8). Aberrant expression of CD71 is seen in a number of cancers, including thyroid carcinomas, lymphomas, and T-lineage leukemias, suggesting a possible therapeutic role for targeted inhibition of the transferrin receptor (9,10).

Background: Small GTPases act as molecular switches, regulating processes such as cell migration, adhesion, proliferation and differentiation. They are activated by guanine nucleotide exchange factors (GEFs), which catalyze the exchange of bound GDP for GTP, and inhibited by GTPase activating proteins (GAPs), which catalyze the hydrolysis of GTP to GDP. RASAL2 was initially identified as a GAP for the small GTPase, Ras, and later shown to interact with the Rho-GEF ECT2, and to regulate Rho activity in human astrocytoma cells (1).Researchers have implicated RASAL2 as a suppressor of migration and metastasis in human cancer (2), and have shown that RASAL2 downregulation promotes epithelial-mesenchymal transition and metastasis in ovarian cancer (3) and lung cancer (4). Conversely, other research studies show that RASAL2 can be oncogenic in triple negative breast cancer through activation of Rac1 signaling (5).

Background: ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling complexes play an essential role in the regulation of various nuclear processes, such as gene expression, DNA replication, and repair (1,2). The SWI/SNF chromatin remodeling complex consists of more than 10 subunits with a single molecule of the ATPase catalytic subunit BRM or BRG1, but not both. The activities of these two subunits drive the disruption of histone-DNA contacts that lead to changes in accessibility of crucial regulatory elements within chromatin (2-5). The BRM/BRG1 containing SWI/SNF complexes are recruited to target promoters by transcription factors, such as nuclear receptors, p53, RB, and BRCA1 to regulate gene activation, cell growth, the cell cycle, and differentiation processes (1,6-9).ARID2 is a unique member of the SWI/SNF complex PBAF, which binds to kinetochores in mitotic chromatin (10,11). PBAF is involved in nuclear receptor-mediated transcription and retinoic acid driven gene activation (12,13). ARID2 is the targeting subunit of the PBAF complex and critical for complex stability (14). It can also mediate DNA repair of double stranded breaks through interactions with RAD51 (15). ARID2 also has been demonstrated to be a tumor suppressor, and inactivating mutations have been found in various cancer types (16-18).

Background: Modulation of chromatin structure plays an important role in the regulation of transcription in eukaryotes. The nucleosome, made up of DNA wound around eight core histone proteins (two each of H2A, H2B, H3, and H4), is the primary building block of chromatin (1). The amino-terminal tails of core histones undergo various post-translational modifications, including acetylation, phosphorylation, methylation, and ubiquitination (2-5). These modifications occur in response to various stimuli and have a direct effect on the accessibility of chromatin to transcription factors and, therefore, gene expression (6). In most species, histone H2B is primarily acetylated at Lys5, 12, 15, and 20 (4,7). Histone H3 is primarily acetylated at Lys9, 14, 18, 23, 27, and 56. Acetylation of H3 at Lys9 appears to have a dominant role in histone deposition and chromatin assembly in some organisms (2,3). Phosphorylation at Ser10, Ser28, and Thr11 of histone H3 is tightly correlated with chromosome condensation during both mitosis and meiosis (8-10). Phosphorylation at Thr3 of histone H3 is highly conserved among many species and is catalyzed by the kinase haspin. Immunostaining with phospho-specific antibodies in mammalian cells reveals mitotic phosphorylation at Thr3 of H3 in prophase and its dephosphorylation during anaphase (11).

Background: Protein phosphatase type 2A (PP2A) is an essential protein serine/threonine phosphatase that is conserved in all eukaryotes. PP2A is a key enzyme within various signal transduction pathways as it regulates fundamental cellular activities such as DNA replication, transcription, translation, metabolism, cell cycle progression, cell division, apoptosis and development (1-3). The core enzyme consists of catalytic C and regulatory A (or PR65) subunits, with each subunit represented by α and β isoforms (1). Additional regulatory subunits belong to four different families of unrelated proteins. Both the B (or PR55) and B' regulatory protein families contain α, β, γ and δ isoforms, with the B' family also including an ε protein. B'' family proteins include PR72, PR130, PR59 and PR48 isoforms, while striatin (PR110) and SG2NA (PR93) are both members of the B''' regulatory protein family. These B subunits competitively bind to a shared binding site on the core A subunit (1). This variable array of holoenzyme components, particularly regulatory B subunits, allows PP2A to act in a diverse set of functions. PP2A function is regulated by expression, localization, holoenzyme composition and post-translational modification. Phosphorylation of PP2A at Tyr307 by Src occurs in response to EGF or insulin and results in a substantial reduction of PP2A activity (4). Reversible methylation on the carboxyl group of Leu309 of PP2A has been observed (5,6). Methylation alters the conformation of PP2A, as well as its localization and association with B regulatory subunits (6-8).

Background: Tuberin is a product of the TSC2 tumor suppressor gene and an important regulator of cell proliferation and tumor development (1). Mutations in either TSC2 or the related TSC1 (hamartin) gene cause tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC), an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by development of multiple, widespread non-malignant tumors (2). Tuberin is directly phosphorylated at Thr1462 by Akt/PKB (3). Phosphorylation at Thr1462 and Tyr1571 regulates tuberin-hamartin complexes and tuberin activity (3-5). In addition, tuberin inhibits the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), which promotes inhibition of p70 S6 kinase, activation of eukaryotic initiation factor 4E binding protein 1 (4E-BP1, an inhibitor of translation initiation), and eventual inhibition of translation (3,6,7).

Background: Potassium channel tetramerization domain-containing protein 12 (KCTD12) belongs to the family of KCTD proteins, which also contains KCTD8, 12b, and 16. These proteins are auxiliary subunits of GABAB receptors (1). The principal subunit of the GABAB receptor is formed by two GABAB receptors, which bind to GABAB ligands, couple to G proteins to inhibit adenylate cyclase production, and gate ion channels (e.g., the GIRK channels) (2). The auxiliary subunits contribute to receptor desensitization. KCTD12 produces fast desensitization by uncoupling the βγ subunits of the G protein from their effector channels (3). Research studies indicate that KCTD12 represents a biomarker with diagnostic and prognostic potential for gastrointestinal stromal tumors (4).

Background: PU.1 is a member of the Ets family of transcription factors and activates target genes through the purine-rich PU-box (1). PU.1 plays a pivotal role in the differentiation of myeloid cells and lymphocytes and is expressed in several hematopoietic cells including B lymphocytes, macrophages, neutrophils, mast cells, early erythroid cells, and megakaryocytes (1,2). The concentration of PU.1 is critical for both the determination of hematopoietic cell lineage and the regulation of differentiation versus stem cell proliferation (3,4). In addition, PU.1 activity is influenced by phosphorylation and interactions with other hematopoietic transcription factors. Phosphorylation of PU.1 at Ser146 by CK2 promotes binding to IRF4 and synergistic activation through the immunoglobulin κ 3' enhancer (5). Treatment of pro-B cells with IL-3 leads to phosphorylation of PU.1 at Ser140, resulting in increased PU.1 activity and activation of the anti-apoptotic gene MCL-1 (6). GATA1 binding blocks PU.1 activity during erythroid cell development (7). Overexpression of PU.1 resulting from proviral insertion during Friend virus infection can induce erythroleukemia, while reduced expression has been associated with acute myeloid leukemia (8).

Background: SRY-related high mobility group box (SOX) proteins comprise a large family of widely conserved transcription factors that play important roles in development. SOX proteins possess a high mobility group (HMG) motif that binds the DNA minor groove. SOX proteins do not directly mediate transcription, but require binding partners that regulate their ability to mediate transcription of target genes that control cell fate determination and development (reviewed in 1).Transcription factor Sox17 is a Sox family protein with an established role in endoderm specification during development (2). In addition, Sox17 plays essential roles in the maintenance of the hematopoietic stem cell pool (3) and for vascular morphogenesis during development (4,5). Sox17 negatively regulates oligodendrocyte precursor differentiation by antagonizing β-catenin signaling (6). Mutation in the corresponding Sox17 gene in humans is associated with a form of vesicoureteral reflux, a disorder characterized by congenital kidney and urinary tract defects (7).

Background: Brachyury protein, encoded by the T gene, is a transcription factor that is vital for the formation of posterior mesoderm and axial development during vertebrate embryogenesis (1). In the mouse, brachyury is necessary for mesodermal morphogenetic cell movements during gastrulation. Brachyury mutant mice die in utero and display deficient mesoderm formation including an abnormal notochord, missing posterior somites, and a reduced allantois (2). Human brachyury is expressed in the notochord, as well as in chordoma tumors that occur along the spine, making it a good marker for notochord and notochord-derived tumors (3,4). A common polymorphism in the human T gene has also been shown to be associated with development of the multifactorial neural tube defect, spina bifida (5,6).

Background: The 55 kDa centrosomal protein (CEP55) is a widely expressed centrosome and midbody-associated protein that regulates cytokinesis, including completion of the final step during cytokinesis known as abscission (1,2). CEP55 activity during abscission is negatively regulated by p53 through Polo-like kinase 1 (3,4). The breast and ovarian cancer DNA repair protein BRCA2 interacts with CEP55 and plays a regulatory role during abscission (5). Research studies demonstrate that CEP55 is also involved in the regulation of Akt signaling, autophagy, and may be a biomarker in human cancer (reviewed in 6). The correlated overexpression of CEP55, the transcription factor FoxM1, and the HELLS helicase is seen in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (7,8). Additional studies demonstrate that CEP55 expression regulates cell proliferation in gastric carcinoma (9).

Background: CUTL1 (Cut-like 1), also known as CUX1 (Cut homeobox 1) (CUX1), is a transcription factor that has been implicated in many cellular processes in different tissues, such as cell migration, neuronal differentiation, and DNA repair (1-5). CUTL1 expression and activities are altered in cancer. Research studies have shown the CUTL1 gene to be a frequent target of loss-of-heterozygocity in various cancers (6,7). On the other hand, CUTL1 expression is elevated in many cancers and is associated with shorter disease-free survival (8). These accumulating evidence suggest that decreased CUTL1 expression promote tumor initiation and increased CUTL1 expression facilitates tumor progression (9). While full-length CUTL1 is about 200 kDa (p200), short forms p110 and p75 can also be generated by proteolytic processing and alternative transcription initiation site, respectively (10, 11).

Background: The cytoskeleton consists of three types of cytosolic fibers: microtubules, microfilaments (actin filaments), and intermediate filaments. Globular tubulin subunits comprise the microtubule building block, with α/β-tubulin heterodimers forming the tubulin subunit common to all eukaryotic cells. γ-tubulin is required to nucleate polymerization of tubulin subunits to form microtubule polymers. Many cell movements are mediated by microtubule action, including the beating of cilia and flagella, cytoplasmic transport of membrane vesicles, chromosome alignment during meiosis/mitosis, and nerve-cell axon migration. These movements result from competitive microtubule polymerization and depolymerization or through the actions of microtubule motor proteins (1).

Background: The T-box family of transcription factors is named for their shared homology with the DNA binding domain of the mouse brachyury (T) gene product. Members of this family bind DNA and are capable of transcriptional activation. They also have evolutionarily conserved expression patterns and roles in embryonic development, primarily mesoderm development (1). EOMES, or Tbr2 (T-box brain 2), is a master regulator of mesoderm formation that is also essential for trophoblast formation, gastrulation, neurogenesis and the differentiation of certain T cell subsets. Embryos from EOMES knock-out mice die soon after implantation due to their inability to develop a trophoblast (2,3). Conditional neural knock out mice show defects in development of a specific population of neural progenators known as Intermediate Progenator Cells (IPCs) that give rise only to neurons (4,5). These cells are formed from the radial glia in the ventricular and sub-ventricular zones of the cortex. Expression of EOMES increases as cells develop from radial glia to IPCs and then decreases as IPCs progress to neurons. Recent evidence suggests that EOMES and IPCs may also play a role neurogenesis in the adult hippocampal SGZ (5). EOMES is also a key transcription factor for memory T cells and for full effector differentiation of CD8+ T cells (6). Expression of EOMES is induced in CD8+ T cells following viral infection and bacterial infection where sufficient IL-12 has been produced to elicit acute host cell response (7).

Background: Positive transcription elongation factor (P-TEFb) is a heterodimer composed of cyclin T proteins and CDK9. P-TEFb plays a critical role in the transition of the RNA polymerase II (RNAPII) machinery from transcription initiation to elongation (1). At some genes during transcription initiation, RNAPII moves approximately 50 nucleotides away from the transcription start site into the gene where it then pauses and awaits signaling for the formation of a productive transcription elongation complex (1,2). The release of this promoter proximal pausing of RNAPII is signaled by phosphorylation of the C-terminal domain (CTD) within the largest subunit of RNAPII at Ser2 of the heptapeptide repeat sequence by P-TEFb (3). This phosphorylation event is important for the recruitment of mRNA processing factors and chromatin modifiers that are necessary for proper gene expression (4,5). P-TEFb also promotes transcription elongation by phosphorylating DSIF (DRB-induced stimulating factor) and NELF (negative elongation factor), two negative elongation factors that retain RNAPII at the promoter proximal region of genes to initiate transcription elongation (6,7).

Background: LMO4 is a LIM zinc-binding domain-containing protein. LMO4 cDNA was first isolated from a breast tumor cDNA library (1). This transcriptional modulator is overexpressed in several epithelial cancers such as prostate, pancreas, and breast (2-4). LMO4 exhibits pro-oncogenic activities by inducing centrosome amplification and mitotic spindle abnormalities (5). LMO4 is also expressed in the brain, in regions involved in learning and the regulation of motivated behavior. In the basolateral amygdala, LMO4 functions to negatively regulate fear learning (6). Furthermore, in the nucleus accumbens, LMO4 was found to regulate the behavioral effects of cocaine (7).

Background: Iron-sulfur (Fe-S) clusters (ISC) are cofactors for many proteins that display a wide range of biological functions, such as DNA maintenance, transcription, translation, cellular metabolism, electron transport, and oxidative phosphorylation (1). While structurally simple, the synthesis and insertion of ISC into Fe-S proteins are complex processes that involve many different proteins. The cytosolic iron-sulfur assembly component 1 (CIAO1) protein is a key component of the cytosolic ISC assembly machinery that incorporates ISC into cytoplasmic and nuclear Fe-S proteins in eukaryotic cells (1,2). CIAO1, along with MMS19, XPD, FAM96B, and ANT2, comprise a complex that localizes to the mitotic spindle during mitosis, which suggests a role in chromosome segregation (3-6). The CIAO1 protein interacts with Wilms' tumor suppressor protein (WT1) and may affect its transactivation activity (7).
