The proteasome is a multicatalytic proteinase complex with a highly ordered ring-shaped 20S core structure. The core structure is composed of 4 rings of 28 non-identical subunits; 2 rings are composed of 7 alpha subunits and 2 rings are composed of 7 beta subunits. Proteasomes are distributed throughout eukaryotic cells at a high concentration and cleave peptides in an ATP/ubiquitin-dependent process in a non-lysosomal pathway. An essential function of a modified proteasome the immunoproteasome is the processing of class I MHC peptides. This gene encodes a member of the peptidase T1A family that is a 20S core alpha subunit. This particular subunit has been shown to interact specifically with the hepatitis B virus X protein a protein critical to viral replication. In addition this subunit is involved in regulating hepatitis virus C internal ribosome entry site (IRES) activity an activity essential for viral replication. This core alpha subunit is also involved in regulating the hypoxia-inducible factor-1alpha a transcription factor important for cellular responses to oxygen tension. Multiple isoforms of this subunit arising from alternative splicing may exist but alternative transcripts for only two isoforms have been defined. A pseudogene has been identified on chromosome 9.
