Endoplasmic reticulum to nucleus signaling 1
IRE1, IRE1alpha, Ire1p
The protein encoded by this gene is the ER to nucleus signalling 1 protein, a human homologue of the yeast Ire1 gene product. This protein possesses intrinsic kinase activity and an endoribonuclease activity and it is important in altering gene expression as a response to endoplasmic reticulum-based stress signals.

The authors identified the BCL-2 family member PUMA as a novel IRE1alpha interactor. Immun oprecipitation experiments confirmed this interaction and further detected the association of IRE1alpha with BIM, another BH3-only protein.
