ERN1 Research Reagents

Serine/threonine-protein kinase/endoribonuclease IRE1 is a protein in humans that is encoded by ERN1 gene. Senses unfolded proteins in the lumen of the endoplasmic reticulum via its N-terminal domain which leads to enzyme auto-activation.

ERN1 Background

Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) to nucleus signaling 1 protein, referred to as ERN1, is a human homologue of the yeast IRE1 ((inositol-requiring enzyme-1), so it is also called human IRE1α. ERN1 contains a cytoplasmic domain that is highly conserved to the yeast counterpart having a Ser/Thr protein kinase domain and a domain homologous to RNase L. ERN1/IRE1α is a special transmembrane sensor protein indispensable for the ER unfolded protein response (UPR). In unstressed cells, the ER luminal domain retains inactive as a monomer by binding to the ER chaperone HSPA5/BiP. Misfolded proteins build up in the ER, causing the release of HSPA5/BiP, which allows the luminal domain to homodimerize, promoting autophosphorylation of the kinase domain and subsequent activation of the endoribonuclease activity. Activation of ERN1 by the association of its N-terminal ER luminal domains promotes autophosphorylation by its cytoplasmic kinase domain, leading to activation of the C-terminal ribonuclease domain, which splices Xbp1 mRNA generating an active Xbp1s transcriptional activator [1].
