DAXX Background

Death domain-associated protein 6 (DAXX) is a highly conserved nuclear protein involved in apoptosis, transcriptional repression, and embryonic development. It possesses a Ser/Pro/Thr-rich domain, an acidic domain, a coiled-coil region, and two paired amphipathic helices [1]. Fas-receptor stimulation causes DAXX to translocate out of the nucleus and into the cytoplasm. DAXX combines with Fas to transmit a Fas-associated death domain (FADD)-independent apoptotic signal by activating Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) [2]. DAXX also mediates UV-induced JNK activation and apoptosis [3]. Apoptosis signal-regulating kinase 1 (Ask1) can translocate DAXX to the cytoplasm. The binding of DAXX and Ask1 may relieve an intramolecular interaction between the amino- and carboxyl-termini of Ask1, activating its kinase activity [4][5]. This a mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase subsequently activates JNK. The promotion of Ask1-mediated apoptosis through DAXX is in a kinase- and caspase-independent manner [6]. Targeted ablation in the mouse unveiled that DAXX is essential for embryonic development [7]. As a component of promyelocytic leukemia protein-nuclear bodies (PML-NBs), DAXX interacts with PML in the mediation of the antiviral defense [8][9]. And DAXX also functions as a transcriptional regulator possessing transcriptional repression activity and interacts directly with several transcription factors such as Pax3/5 and Smad4 (5, 6) [10][11]. Besides, Pascal Drane´ and Khalid Ouararhni et al. identified that DAXX serves as a chaperone taking part in the replication-independent deposition of H3.3, one of the best-studied histone variants which can replace the major species, H3.1 [12].
