General description

This gene is a member of the inhibitor of apoptosis (IAP) gene family, which encode negative regulatory proteins that prevent apoptotic cell death. IAP family members usually contain multiple baculovirus IAP repeat (BIR) domains, but this gene encodes proteins with only a single BIR domain. The encoded proteins also lack a C-terminus RING finger domain. Gene expression is high during fetal development and in most tumors yet low in adult tissues. Antisense transcripts are involved in the regulation of this gene′s expression. At least four transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been found for this gene, but the full-length natures of only three of them have been determined. (provided by RefSeq)

Biochem/physiol Actions

BIRC5 (Baculoviral inhibitor of apoptosis repeat-containing 5) functions as a cell surface receptor for factor Xa. It is predicted to be a potential factor in protease-dependent cellular effector functions. It also behaves as a receptor for factor Xa during the cell surface assembly of proteolytic activities and leukocyte mitogenesis. A study reports that the expression of BIRC5 can be controlled by mRNA splicing. It is an inhibitor of apoptosis and is expressed in various malignancies.
