Gene: Aifm1 (apoptosis-inducing factor, mitochondrion-associated 1) Mus musculus
Symbol: Aifm1
Name: apoptosis-inducing factor, mitochondrion-associated 1
Description: Exhibits DNA binding activity; FAD binding activity; and NAD(P)H oxidase activity. Involved in several processes, including intrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway in response to endoplasmic reticulum stress; neuron apoptotic process; and regulation of apoptotic DNA fragmentation. Localizes to the cytosol; mitochondrion; and nucleus. Used to study mitochondrial complex I deficiency. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease X-linked recessive 4; X-linked nonsyndromic deafness; and combined oxidative phosphorylation deficiency. Is expressed in several structures, including early embryo and retina. Orthologous to human AIFM1 (apoptosis inducing factor mitochondria associated 1); PARTICIPATES IN ceramide signaling pathway; apoptotic cell death pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: AIF; AIFsh2; apoptosis-inducing factor 1, mitochondrial; harlequin; Hq; mAIF; MGC5706; Pdcd8; programmed cell death 8; programmed cell death protein 8
