|Function||Adapter or scaffold protein which participates in the assembly of numerous protein complexes and is involved in several cellular processes such as cell fate determination, cytoskeletal organization, repression of gene transcription, cell-cell adhesion, cell differentiation, proliferation and migration. Positively regulates microRNA (miRNA)-mediated gene silencing. Negatively regulates Hippo signaling pathway and antagonizes phosphorylation of YAP1. Acts as a transcriptional corepressor for SNAI1 and SNAI2/SLUG-dependent repression of E-cadherin transcription. Acts as a hypoxic regulator by bridging an association between the prolyl hydroxylases and VHL enabling efficient degradation of HIF1A. In podocytes, may play a role in the regulation of actin dynamics and/or foot process cytoarchitecture (By similarity). In the course of podocyte injury, shuttles into the nucleus and acts as a transcription regulator that represses WT1-dependent transcription regulation, thereby translating changes in slit diaphragm structure into altered gene expression and a less differentiated phenotype.|
|Cellular Location||Cell junction, adherens junction. Nucleus. Cytoplasm, P-body. Note=Following podocyte injury, caused by treatment with LPS, puromycin aminonucleoside, ultraviolet or hydrogen peroxide, translocates from sites of cell- cell contacts into the cytosol and nucleus. The shift from cell contacts to intracellular plaques starts as early as 1 hour after LPS stimulation and intranuclear localization begins 3 hours after LPS treatment. Maximal nuclear localization is achieved 6 hours after LPS treatment. Nuclear translocation requires dynein motor activity and intact microtubule network (By similarity). Returns to cell-cell contacts 24 hours after LPS stimulation. In the presence of ROR2, localizes to the plasma membrane (By similarity).|

WTIP may monitor slit diaphragm protein assembly, a specialized adherens junction characteristic of podocytes. In case of podocyte injury, it shuttles into the nucleus and acts as a transcription regulator that represses WT1-dependent transcription regulation, thereby translating changes in slit diaphragm structure into altered gene expression and a less differentiated phenotype (By similarity).
