Death-domain associated protein

Daxx, hDaxx
This gene encodes a multifunctional protein that resides in multiple locations in the nucleus and in the cytoplasm. It interacts with a wide variety of proteins, such as apoptosis antigen Fas, centromere protein C, and transcription factor erythroblastosis virus E26 oncogene homolog 1. In the nucleus, the encoded protein functions as a potent transcription repressor that binds to sumoylated transcription factors. Its repression can be relieved by the sequestration of this protein into promyelocytic leukemia nuclear bodies or nucleoli. This protein also associates with centromeres in G2 phase. In the cytoplasm, the encoded protein may function to regulate apoptosis. The subcellular localization and function of this protein are modulated by post-translational modifications, including sumoylation, phosphorylation and polyubiquitination. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2008] (from NCBI)

Neuroendocrine Tumor of the Pancreas as a Unique Manifestation of Cowden Syndrome: a Case Report.
New
Kebebew et al., Bethesda, United States. In J Clin Endocrinol Metab, Jan 2016
The germline DNA sequencing confirmed the clinical diagnosis of CS and revealed a PTEN mutation c.697C→T (p.R233*) causing a premature stop codon in exon 7. The tumor DNA sequencing showed no LOH or any copy number changes, and no other deleterious genetic alterations including those commonly mutated in sporadic pancreatic NETs; MEN1, ATRX, DAXX, TP53, and genes involved in the mTOR pathway.

PML is mainly expressed in the nucleus, where it forms dynamic structures known as PML nuclear bodies that recruit many other proteins, such as Sp100 and Daxx.
Molecular mechanisms of activity and derepression of alternative lengthening of telomeres.
Review
New
Reddel et al., Sydney, Australia. In Nat Struct Mol Biol, Nov 2015
This multistep process is facilitated by loss of the ATRX or DAXX chromatin-remodeling factors and by abnormalities of the telomere nucleoprotein architecture, including altered DNA sequence and decreased TRF2 saturation.
Biomarker-driven diagnosis of diffuse gliomas.

Brat et al., Atlanta, United States. In Mol Aspects Med, Nov 2015
Pediatric gliomas differ in their spectrum of disease from those in adults; high grade gliomas occurring in children frequently have mutations in H3F3A, ATRX and DAXX, but not IDH.
