TIGAR is a p53-inducible protein that functions to regulate glycolysis and protect against oxidative stress and is part of the p53 tumor suppressor pathway. It encodes a protein with sequence similarity to the bisphosphate domain of the glycolytic enzyme that degrades fructose-2, 6-bisphosphate. TIGAR functions by blocking glycolysis and directing the pathway into the pentose phosphate shunt. Overexpression of TIGAR in mouse and human cells resulted in inhibition of glycolysis, as well as a decrease in intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) and provides some protection from DNA damage-induced apoptosis in a cell type-specific manner.
