Paraneoplastic antigen Ma (IPR026523)

Short name: PNMA

Family relationships


The paraneoplastic Ma antigens (PNMA) have been identified using sera from patients with paraneoplastic neurological syndromes [PMID: 16214224]. This family includes paraneoplastic antigen PNMA1 [PMID: 10050892], PNMA2 [PMID: 10362822], PNMA3 [PMID: 11558790], PNMA4 (also known as modulator of apoptosis 1 or MOAP-1) [PMID: 11060313] and some paraneoplastic antigen-like proteins (PNMA5 and PNMA6). The family also includes modulator of apoptosis 1, which has a role in death receptor-dependent apoptosis [PMID: 15949439].
