Cyclic AMP-dependent transcription factor ATF-1; This protein binds the cAMP response element (CRE) (consensus: 5'-GTGACGT[AC][AG]-3'), a sequence present in many viral and cellular promoters. Binds to the Tax-responsive element (TRE) of HTLV-I. Mediates PKA-induced stimulation of CRE-reporter genes. Represses the expression of FTH1 and other antioxidant detoxification genes. Triggers cell proliferation and transformation; Basic leucine zipper proteins
Synonyms: ATF1, ATF1p, hATF1, B4DRF9, F8VRN2 ...
