GADD45G (growth arrest and DNA-damage-inducible, γ) gene encodes a protein that is expressed in increased levels under stress, growth arrest conditions and treatment with DNA-damaging agents such as UV (ultraviolet) and γ-irradiation. It mediates activation of MTK1/MEKK4 kinase (mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase 4) upon environmental stress, which in turn activates p38 and JNK MAPK (c-Jun N-terminal kinase/ mitogen-activated protein kinase) pathways that regulate cell cycle and apoptosis. The encoded protein functions in DNA repair, negative growth control, genomic stability, cell cycle checkpoints and apoptosis.
This gene is a member of a group of genes whose transcript levels are increased following stressful growth arrest conditions and treatment with DNA-damaging agents. The protein encoded by this gene responds to environmental stresses by mediating activation of the p38/JNK pathway via MTK1/MEKK4 kinase. The GADD45G is highly expressed in placenta.
