DDIT4 (human)

DDIT4 Inhibits cell growth by regulating the TOR signaling pathway upstream of the TSC1-TSC2 complex and downstream of AKT1. Promotes neuronal cell death. Up-regulated in fibroblasts upon ionizing radiation, via a TP53-dependent pathway. Up-regulated by TP63 in primary keratinocytes, and down-regulated during keratinocyte differentiation. Up-regulated upon DNA alkylation. Up-regulated by amyloid beta-peptide and retinoic acid. Up-regulated by hypoxia, via a PI3K and HIF1A-dependent but TP53/TP63-independent mechanism. Broadly expressed, with lowest levels in brain, skeletal muscle and intestine. Up-regulated in substantia nigra neurons from Parkinson disease patients. Belongs to the DDIT4 family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
