metastasis-associated protein. A component of the NuRD ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling and histone deacetylase complex. Interacts with HDAC1. Expressed at high levels in metastatic cells. Two alternatively spliced isoforms have been described. The long isoform is a co-repressor of estrogen receptor (ER). The short isoform binds to ER and sequesters it in the cytoplasm and enhances non-genomic responses of ER. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: Motility/polarity/chemotaxis; Nuclear receptor co-regulator; Transcription, coactivator/corepressor
Biological Process: circadian regulation of gene expression; double-strand break repair; entrainment of circadian clock by photoperiod; locomotor rhythm; proteasomal ubiquitin-dependent protein catabolic process; protein sumoylation; regulation of gene expression, epigenetic; regulation of inflammatory response; response to ionizing radiation; response to lipopolysaccharide; signal transduction
