HIP1

Official Full Name
huntingtin interacting protein 1
Background
The product of this gene is a membrane-associated protein that colocalizes with huntingtin. This protein has similarities to cytoskeleton proteins and its interaction with huntingtin is thought to play a functional role in the cell filament network. Loss of normal huntingtin-HIP1 interaction in Huntington disease may contribute to a defect in membrane-cytoskeletal integrity in the brain. This gene could help in the understanding of the normal function of huntingtin and also the pathogenesis of Huntington disease. It also has been implicated in the pathogenesis of hematopoietic malignancies. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
Synonyms
HIP1; huntingtin interacting protein 1; huntingtin-interacting protein 1; ILWEQ; HIP-I; huntingtin-interacting protein I; MGC126506; wu:fb98d04; fb98d04
