Baculoviral IAP repeat-containing protein 6 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the BIRC6 gene.[5][6]

Function[edit]

This gene encodes a protein with a BIR (baculoviral inhibition of apoptosis protein repeat) domain and a UBCc (ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme E2, catalytic) domain. This protein inhibits apoptosis by facilitating the degradation of apoptotic proteins by ubiquitination.[6]

Interactions[edit]

BIRC6 has been shown to interact with KIF23.[7]

Diseases[edit]

BIRC6 is implicated in leukemia, melanoma, breast cancer, lung cancer, colorectal cancer, and other cancers[8] (see the Atlas of Genetics and Cytogenetics in Oncology and Haematology[9]).
