Host cell factor-binding transcription factor Zhangfei; Strongly activates transcription when bound to HCFC1. Suppresses the expression of HSV proteins in cells infected with the virus in a HCFC1-dependent manner. Also suppresses the HCFC1- dependent transcriptional activation by CREB3 and reduces the amount of CREB3 in the cell. Able to down-regulate expression of some cellular genes in CREBZF-expressing cells; Belongs to the bZIP family. ATF subfamily.
Synonyms: CREBZF, E9PIM0, E9PRP7, J3KN20, Q9NS37 ...
