NDRG1 (human)

NDRG1 a hypoxia-inducible anti-apoptotic protein. Promotes proliferation and correlates with invasion, metastasis and poor prognosis in many cancers. Is involved in growth arrest and cell differentiation during development. A ubiquitous Rab4a effector protein that modulates angiogenesis and is involved in vesicular recycling of E-cadherin. Colocalizes with transferrin during the recycling in cells. NDRG1 knockdown delays the recycling rate of transferrin, while its overexpression increases the rate of transferrin recycling. Interacts with SIRT1/p53 signaling to attenuate hypoxic injury in human trophoblasts. Its expression is induced by an elevation of free intracellular calcium ion caused by nickel ion exposure. Highly expressed in placental membranes, prostate, kidney, small intestine, ovary, peripheral nerves and Schwann cells. Defects in NDRG1 are the cause of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 4D (CMT4D).
