DAXX


Also found in: Acronyms.

DAXX

A gene on chromosome 6p21.3 that encodes a multifunctional protein located in the cytoplasm and nucleus which, as an adaptor protein in the MDM2-DAXX-USP7 complex, regulates RING-finger E3 ligase ubiquitination activity. It is thought to mediate activation of the JNK pathway and apoptosis via MAP3K5, in response to signalling from TNFRSF6 and TGFBR2.

Patients whose tumors had mutations in three genes -- MEN-1, DAXX and ATRX -- lived at least 10 years after diagnosis, while more than 60 percent of patients whose tumors lacked these mutations died within five years of diagnosis.The Johns Hopkins team, which previously mapped six other cancer types, used automated tools to create a genetic "map" that provides clues to how tumors develop, grow and spread.Within the code are individual chemicals called nucleotides, which pair together in a pre-programmed fashion to build DNA and, in turn, a genome.
