  • Function

    May participate in mRNA transport in the cytoplasm (By similarity). Critical component of the oxidative stress-induced survival signaling. Activates src family kinases and acts as a scaffolding protein enabling src family kinases to phosphorylate and activate PI3-kinase. Binds RNA and promotes the secretion of IGF-II. May play a pivotal role in the progression of scirrhous-type gastric cancer by supporting cancer cell survival in environments with various oxidative stresses.
  • Tissue specificity

    Ubiquitously expressed. Highly expressed in scirrhous-type gastric cancer tissues compared with normal gastric mucosa (at protein level).
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the constitutive coactivator of PPAR-gamma family.
  • Post-translational

    Arg-982 is dimethylated, probably to asymmetric dimethylarginine.
    Phosphorylated on tyrosine by src family kinases upon ultraviolet exposure.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm. Cell membrane. Translocates to plasma membrane upon ultraviolet exposure.
