MTUS1 Cooperates with AGTR2 to inhibit ERK2 activation and cell proliferation. May be required for AGTR2 cell surface expression. Together with PTPN6, induces UBE2V2 expression upon angiotensin-II stimulation. Isoform 1 inhibits breast cancer cell proliferation, delays the progression of mitosis by prolonging metaphase and reduces tumor growth. Belongs to the MTUS1 family. Ubiquitously expressed (at protein level). Highly expressed in brain. Down-regulated in ovarian carcinoma, pancreas carcinoma, colon carcinoma and head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Isoform 1 is the major isoform in most peripheral tissues. Isoform 2 is abundant in most peripheral tissues. Isoform 3 is the major isoform in brain, female reproductive tissues, thyroid and heart. Within brain it is highly expressed in corpus callosum and pons. Isoform 6 is brain-specific, it is the major isoform in cerebellum and fetal brain. 7 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported.
