TIGAR a 270 AA, p53-inducible protein is known an isomerase belonging to phosphoglycerate mutase family. It is a part of the p53 tumor suppressor pathway that regulates glycolysis and protects against oxidative stress. Report shows that it has sequence similarity to the bisphosphate domain of the glycolytic enzyme that degrades fructose-2, 6-bisphosphate and blocks glycolysis thereby directing the pathway into the pentose phosphate shunt. Over expression 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.
