p53/TP53-regulated repressor of Akt/AKT1 signaling. Represses AKT1 by preventing AKT1-binding to membrane lipids, thereby inhibiting AKT1 translocation to the cellular membrane and activation. Contributes to p53/TP53-dependent apoptosis by repressing AKT1 activity. Its directs transcription regulation by p53/TP53 may explain how p53/TP53 can negatively regulate AKT1. May acts as a tumor suppressor. Belongs to the PHLDA3 family. Induced by p53/TP53; expression is directly activated by p53/TP53. p53/TP53 phosphorylation on 'Ser-15' is required to activate the PHLDA3 promoter.

Biological Process: anatomical structure morphogenesis; DNA damage response, signal transduction by p53 class mediator resulting in induction of apoptosis; negative regulation of protein kinase B signaling cascade; positive regulation of apoptosis
