High impact information on Hs1bp1

  • Analysis of expression indicates that overall Hax-1 mRNA level is relatively low in most tissues and very high in testes, and that the expression pattern of the variants is similar in different tissues [1].
  • Hax-1 protein, which has been studied in mice and humans, shows a potent anti-apoptotic activity and is involved in regulation of cell motility [1].
  • Overexpression of HAX-1 protects cardiac myocytes from apoptosis through caspase-9 inhibition [2].
  • Through a yeast two-hybrid screening of adult human heart cDNA library, we identified HS-1 associated protein-1 (HAX-1), a 35-kD BH-domain containing protein localized to the mitochondria as one of the molecules that interacts with caspase-9 [2].
