Protein Information
Synonyms PACT, RAX
Function Activates EIF2AK2/PKR in the absence of double-stranded RNA (dsRNA), leading to phosphorylation of EIF2S1/EFI2-alpha and inhibition of translation and induction of apoptosis. Required for siRNA production by DICER1 and for subsequent siRNA-mediated post- transcriptional gene silencing. Does not seem to be required for processing of pre-miRNA to miRNA by DICER1. Promotes UBC9-p53/TP53 association and sumoylation and phosphorylation of p53/TP53 at 'Lys-386' at 'Ser-392' respectively and enhances its activity in a EIF2AK2/PKR-dependent manner (By similarity).
Cellular Location Cytoplasm, perinuclear region. Cytoplasm.

Protein kinase, interferon-inducible double stranded RNA dependent activator (PACT, PRKRA) is a proapoptotic cellular protein activator of PKR, a double-stranded RNA-dependent protein kinase (1). PACT is reported to be stress-activated, and a physiologic activator that couples transmembrane stress signals and protein synthesis (2). Overexpression of PACT in cells causes enhanced sensitivity to stress-induced apoptosis. It is expressed at high levels in colonic epithelial cells, especially as they exit the cell cycle and enter an apoptotic program (3).
