Gene RIF (11)

26474786 SelW may have a regulatory function in redox cell signaling by interacting with 14-3-3 protein.
25721765 Suppression of EGFR ubiquitination by SEPW1 may be related to the putative increase in cancer risk associated with high selenium intakes.
23830627 In response to selenium compounds, SepW1 synthesis increased at the protein and the mRNA levels.
22730327 SEPW1 silencing increases MKK4, which activates p38gamma, p38delta, and JNK2 to phosphorylate p53 on Ser-33 and cause a transient G(1) arrest.
21875573 The present work shows that SEPW1 facilitates the G1 to S-phase transition by down-regulating expression of the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p21
21866568 p53 was increased in SEPW1 silenced cells and was inversely correlated with SEPW1 mRNA in cell lines with altered SEPW1 expression.
19690192 The small interfering RNA knockdown of BNIP3, IER3, and SEPW1 genes affected critical multiple myeloma endothelial cell functions correlated with the overangiogenic phenotype
19387567 SEPW1 mRNA levels were maximal during G1-phase, dropped after the G1/S transition and increased again after G2/M-phase.
15823556 SeW is the novel molecular target of MeHg in human neuronal cells and down-regulation of this selenoenzyme by MeHg is dependent not on generation of ROS but on depletion of GSH.
15670848 SelW expression in the colon is highly sensitive to Se-depletion
12818432 The gene lacks canonical TATA and CAAT boxes, but has numerous Sp1 consensus binding sites upstream of multiple transcription start sites. SEPW1 is expressed in all of the 22 tissues assayed, and shows highest expression in skeletal muscle and heart.
