a multifunctional and multicompartmental protein involved in inflammation and infection processes, ribosome biogenesis, regulation of apoptosis, transcriptional regulation and pre-mRNA splicing. Originally identified via its binding interactions with Splicing Factor (SF-2). Multiple, diverse binding partners of C1QBP were subsequently identified, including the globular heads of complement component C1q, hyaluronic acid, selected protein kinases, the tumor suppressor ARF, and multiple antigens of bacterial and viral origin. Overexpressed in a number of cancer cell types, and has been implicated in the Warburg effect, whereby cancer cells shift their metabolism from oxidative phosphorylation to glycolysis. Inhibits the Mitochondrial Permeability Transition (MPT) pore, possibly serving a protective function against damage from oxidative stress. Binding to C1q inhibits C1. In complex with cytokeratin-1/KRT1 is a high affinty receptor for kininogen-1/HMWK. The secreted form may enhance both extrinsic and intrinsic coagulation pathways. The cell surface form may require docking with transmembrane proteins for downstream signaling which might be specific for a cell-type or response. Belongs to the MAM33 family.
