Immunoprecipitation of TSG101 transfected lysate using anti-TSG101 MaxPab rabbit polyclonal antibody and Protein A Magnetic Bead (U0007), and immunoblotted with TSG101 purified MaxPab mouse polyclonal antibody (B01P) (H00007251-B01P).
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to a group of apparently inactive homologs of ubiquitin-conjugating enzymes. The gene product contains a coiled-coil domain that interacts with stathmin, a cytosolic phosphoprotein implicated in tumorigenesis. The protein may play a role in cell growth and differentiation and act as a negative growth regulator. In vitro steady-state expression of this tumor susceptibility gene appears to be important for maintenance of genomic stability and cell cycle regulation. Mutations and alternative splicing in this gene occur in high frequency in breast cancer and suggest that defects occur during breast cancer tumorigenesis and/or progression. [provided by RefSeq
