Protein Information
Name AIMP1
Synonyms EMAP2, SCYE1
Function Non-catalytic component of the multisynthase complex. Stimulates the catalytic activity of cytoplasmic arginyl-tRNA synthase. Binds tRNA. Possesses inflammatory cytokine activity. Negatively regulates TGF-beta signaling through stabilization of SMURF2 by binding to SMURF2 and inhibiting its SMAD7-mediated degradation. Involved in glucose homeostasis through induction of glucagon secretion at low glucose levels. Promotes dermal fibroblast proliferation and wound repair. Regulates KDELR1- mediated retention of HSP90B1/gp96 in the endoplasmic reticulum. Plays a role in angiogenesis by inducing endothelial cell migration at low concentrations and endothelian cell apoptosis at high concentrations. Induces maturation of dendritic cells and monocyte cell adhesion. Modulates endothelial cell responses by degrading HIF-1A through interaction with PSMA7.
Cellular Location Nucleus. Cytoplasm, cytosol. Cytoplasmic vesicle, secretory vesicle. Secreted Endoplasmic reticulum. Golgi apparatus. Note=Enriched in secretory vesicles of pancreatic alpha cells and secreted from the pancreas in response to low glucose levels (By similarity). Also secreted in response to hypoxia and both apoptotic and necrotic cell death.

AIMP1 (Endothelial monocyte-activating polypeptide II, EMAP2) is a proinflammatory cytokine for monocytes and granulocytes (1). It is specifically induced by apoptosis and is involved in the control of angiogenesis, inflammation, and wound healing (1,2). AIMP1 was identified as one of three auxiliary factors of the mammalian aminoacyl tRNA synthetase (ARS) complex. It binds and facilitates the catalytic reaction of arginyl-tRNA synthetase (2,3). Recent studies show that CD23 plays an essential role in the AIMP1-induced immune response and might be a target in the treatment of inflammatory diseases (4).
