Description

The eukaryotic translation elongation factor 1 epsilon 1 (EEF1E1), also known as p18, is a well-known tumor suppressor, which plays a role in the ATM/ATR-mediated p53 (TP53) activation [2155].

Knockout mice result in early embryonic death (homozygous) or are born alive but show highly increased susceptibility to various cancers (heterozygous). On the other hand, transgenic mice overexpressing EEF1E1 constitutively have an imbalance in the protein levels of lamin A (LMNA) isoforms, and thus a significantly shorter mean lifespan and a phenotype characteristic to mouse progeroid models [2156].

The expression of p18 is downregulated in gastric and colorectal cancers [2157].
