Translocation, Genetic

A type of chromosome aberration characterized by CHROMOSOME BREAKAGE and transfer of the broken-off portion to another location, often to a different chromosome.

Year introduced: 2005(1968)


Protein Transport

The process of moving proteins from one cellular compartment (including extracellular) to another by various sorting and transport mechanisms such as gated transport, protein translocation, and vesicular transport.

Year introduced: 2001


Bacterial Translocation

The passage of viable bacteria from the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT to extra-intestinal sites, such as the mesenteric lymph node complex, liver, spleen, kidney, and blood. Factors that promote bacterial translocation include overgrowth with gram-negative enteric bacilli, impaired host immune defenses, and injury to the INTESTINAL MUCOSA resulting in increased intestinal permeability. Bacterial translocation from the lung to the circulation is also possible and sometimes accompanies MECHANICAL VENTILATION.

Year introduced: 1996


RUNX1 Translocation Partner 1 Protein

A transcriptional co-repressor that contains a MYND-type zinc finger (MYND DOMAIN) at its C-terminal and functions as a homo-oligomer. It associates with DNA-binding transcription factors, other repressor proteins, and HISTONE ACETYLTRANSFERASES to repress expression of genes involved in cell growth and differentiation such as MATRIX METALLOPROTEINASE 7 and TCF12. A CHROMOSOMAL TRANSLOCATION involving the RUNX1T1 and CORE BINDING FACTOR ALPHA 2 SUBUNIT (RUNX1) genes frequently occurs in cells of leukemia patients; the resulting fusion protein (AML1-ETO or RUNX1-RUNX1T1) plays a critical role in leukemogenesis.

Year introduced: 2018


Mucosa-Associated Lymphoid Tissue Lymphoma Translocation 1 Protein

A caspase-like cysteine endopeptidase that also exhibits ubiquitin ligase activity. It contains an N-terminal DEATH DOMAIN, two IMMUNOGLOBULIN-LIKE DOMAINS, and localizes to the perinuclear region of MONOCYTES, where it functions in activation of NF-KAPPA B; it also binds to and activates TRAF6. Chromosomal translocations involving the MALT1 and BIRC2 genes are associated with MALT LYMPHOMA, and mutations in the MALT1 gene are associated with Type 12 IMMUNODEFICIENCY SYNDROMES.

Year introduced: 2018


SEC Translocation Channels

Universally conserved multiprotein complexes that form the protein transport channel of the general secretory (SEC) pathway. The SEC translocase is present in all bacteria, archaea, and eukaryotes. It is in the ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM membrane of eukaryotic cells, in the THYLAKOID MEMBRANE in CHLOROPLASTS and in some protozoa in the INNER MITOCHONDRIAL MEMBRANE.

Year introduced: 2017


Twin-Arginine-Translocation System

Protein translocase in BACTERIA or CHLOROPLASTS that exports or secretes folded proteins. In GRAM-NEGATIVE BACTERIA, twin-arginine translocase (TAT) is involved in the export of folded proteins to the PERIPLASM. In chloroplasts, TAT is involved in transporting folded proteins across the membranes of THYLAKOIDS.

Year introduced: 2016


Protein Translocation Systems

Multiprotein complexes that carry out PROTEIN TRANSPORT across CELL MEMBRANES.

Year introduced: 2016
