  • FunctionComponent of the beta-catenin destruction complex required for regulating CTNNB1 levels through phosphorylation and ubiquitination, and modulating Wnt-signaling. Controls dorsoventral patterning via two opposing effects; down-regulates CTNNB1 to inhibit the Wnt signaling pathway and ventralize embryos, but also dorsalizes embryos by activating a Wnt-independent JNK signaling pathway. In Wnt signaling, probably facilitates the phosphorylation of CTNNB1 and APC by GSK3B. Likely to function as a tumor suppressor. Facilitates the phosphorylation of TP53 by HIPK2 upon ultraviolet irradiation. Enhances TGF-beta signaling by recruiting the RNF111 E3 ubiquitin ligase and promoting the degradation of inhibitory SMAD7. Also component of the AXIN1-HIPK2-TP53 complex which controls cell growth, apoptosis and development.
  • Tissue specificityUbiquitously expressed.
  • Involvement in diseaseHepatocellular carcinoma
    Caudal duplication anomaly
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 DIX domain.
    Contains 1 RGS domain.
  • DomainThe tankyrase-binding motif (also named TBD) is required for interaction with tankyrase TNKS and TNKS2.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylation and dephosphorylation of AXIN1 regulates assembly and function of the beta-catenin complex. Phosphorylated by CK1 and GSK3B. Dephosphorylated by PPP1CA and PPP2CA. Phosphorylation by CK1 enhances binding of GSK3B to AXIN1.
    ADP-ribosylated by tankyrase TNKS and TNKS2. Poly-ADP-ribosylated protein is recognized by RNF146, followed by ubiquitination at 'Lys-48' and subsequent activation of the Wnt signaling pathway.
    Ubiquitinated by RNF146 when poly-ADP-ribosylated, leading to its degradation and subsequent activation of the Wnt signaling pathway. Sumoylation at Lys-857 and Lys-860 prevents ubiquitination and degradation. Sumoylation is required for AXIN1-mediated JNK activation. Deubiquitinated by USP34, deubiquitinated downstream of beta-catenin stabilization step: deubiquitination is important for nuclear accumulation during Wnt signaling to positively regulate beta-catenin (CTNBB1)-mediated transcription.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Nucleus. Membrane. Cell membrane. MACF1 is required for its translocation to cell membrane (By similarity). On UV irradiation, translocates to the nucleus and colocalizes with DAAX (PubMed:17210684).

Anti-Axin 1 antibody images

  • ab114205, at 3.75 ug/ml, staining Axin-1 in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded Human adrenal tissue by immunohistochemistry.
  • Immunohistochemical analysis of rat bladder tissue, staining Axin 1 with ab115205.

    Tissue was fixed with formalin and blocked with 5000 µg/ml BSA for 30 minutes at 22°C; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in citrate buffer (pH 6). Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100 in BSA) for 1 hour at 22°C. An AlexaFluor®488-conjugated donkey anti-goat polyclonal IgG (1/400) was used as the secondary antibody.
