|Synonyms||C9orf10, KIAA0183, OSSA|
|Function||May participate in mRNA transport in the cytoplasm (By similarity). Critical component of the oxidative stress-induced survival signaling. Activates src family kinases and acts as a scaffolding protein enabling src family kinases to phosphorylate and activate PI3-kinase. Binds RNA and promotes the secretion of IGF-II. May play a pivotal role in the progression of scirrhous- type gastric cancer by supporting cancer cell survival in environments with various oxidative stresses.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Cell membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side. Note=Translocates to plasma membrane upon ultraviolet exposure|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitously expressed. Highly expressed in scirrhous-type gastric cancer tissues compared with normal gastric mucosa (at protein level).|

FAM120A Antibody: FAM120A (C9orf10) is a member of the constitutive coactivator of PPAR gamma family and the gene was mapped to chromosome 9q22.31. FAM120A was recently detected within the Pur-alpha-containing mRNA-protein complex in the brain. As a novel RNA-binding protein, FAM120A is a critical component of the oxidative stress-induced survival signaling. It may participate in mRNA transport in the cytoplasm. FAM120A activates src family kinases and acts as a scaffolding protein enabling src family kinases to phosphorylate and activate PI3-kinase. FAM120A protects cells from apoptosis through activation of SRKs in response to oxidative stress. Blocking of the survival signaling mediated by FAM120A, which sensitizes the cancer cells to stress-induced apoptosis, may be a novel therapeutic approach for gastric scirrhous carcinoma cells.
