Apoptosis-inducing factor, mitochondrion-associated 1

Harlequin, PDCD8
This gene encodes a flavoprotein essential for nuclear disassembly in apoptotic cells, and it is found in the mitochondrial intermembrane space in healthy cells. Induction of apoptosis results in the translocation of this protein to the nucleus where it affects chromosome condensation and fragmentation. In addition, this gene product induces mitochondria to release the apoptogenic proteins cytochrome c and caspase-9. Mutations in this gene cause combined oxidative phosphorylation deficiency 6, which results in a severe mitochondrial encephalomyopathy. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. A related pseudogene has been identified on chromosome 10. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010] (from NCBI)

Harlequin syndrome after thyroidectomy for compressive retrosternal goiter. Case report and review of the literature.
Vermeersch et al., In Acta Chir Belg, 2014
A 74-year-old woman with known euthyroid multinodular retrosternal goiter necessitated an urgent intubation at home, due to acute respiratory distress evoked by tracheal compression.
[Evaluation of sudomotor function].
Asahina, Chiba, Japan. In Rinsho Shinkeigaku, 2013
Abnormal sweating, which can be global or localized, is classified into hyperhidrosis and hypohidrosis, and detection of abnormal sweating, such as Horner's syndrome and Harlequin syndrome, is clinically useful for regional diagnosis of neurological lesions.
[Dysautonomic syndrome of the face with Harlequin sign and syndrome: Three new cases and a review of the literature].
Zagnoli et al., Lyon, France. In Rev Neurol (paris), 2013
INTRODUCTION: Harlequin phenomenon is characterized by a strictly unilateral erythrosis of the face with flushing and hyperhydrosis, and controlaterally a pale anhydrotic aspect.
A role for apoptosis-inducing factor in T cell development.
Rath et al., New Delhi, India. In J Exp Med, 2012
Aif serves a lineage-specific nonredundant antiapoptotic role in the T cell lineage by regulating reactive oxygen species during thymic beta-selection.
Bnip3 and AIF cooperate to induce apoptosis and cavitation during epithelial morphogenesis.
Li et al., New Brunswick, United States. In J Cell Biol, 2012
These results uncover a mechanism of cavitation through hypoxia-induced apoptosis of the core cells mediated by HIFs, Bnip3, and AIF.
The regulatory roles of apoptosis-inducing factor in the formation and regression processes of ocular neovascularization.
Miller et al., Boston, United States. In Am J Pathol, 2012

Steroid receptor coactivator-interacting protein (SIP) inhibits caspase-independent apoptosis by preventing apoptosis-inducing factor (AIF) from being released from mitochondria.
Shang et al., Beijing, China. In J Biol Chem, 2012
Our data demonstrate that SIP is a novel regulator in caspase-independent and AIF-mediated apoptosis.
TWEAK affects keratinocyte G2/M growth arrest and induces apoptosis through the translocation of the AIF protein to the nucleus.
Tsapis et al., Paris, France. In Plos One, 2011
Confocal microscopy showed that TWEAK induces the cleavage and the translocation of apoptosis inducing factor (AIF) from the mitochondria to the nucleus, thus initiating caspase-independent apoptosis.
The harlequin mouse mutation downregulates apoptosis-inducing factor.
Ackerman et al., Bar Harbor, United States. In Nature, 2002
Hq cerebellar granule cells are susceptible to peroxide-mediated apoptosis, but can be rescued by AIF expression; overexpression of AIF in wild-type granule cells decreases peroxide-mediated cell death, suggesting AIF serves as a free radical scavenger
