Summary
This gene encodes a member of the mammalian activation transcription factor/cAMP responsive element-binding (CREB) protein family of transcription factors. This gene is induced by a variety of signals, including many of those encountered by cancer cells, and is involved in the complex process of cellular stress response. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. It is possible that alternative splicing of this gene may be physiologically important in the regulation of target genes. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2011]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.

    Status: REVIEWED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (3) differs in the 5' UTR, compared to variant 1. Both variants 1 and 3 encode the same isoform (1), which represses rather than activates transcription from promoters with ATF-binding elements.

    Status: REVIEWED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (4, also known as deltaZip2a) contains an alternate terminal exon, and thus differs in the 3' coding region and 3' UTR, compared to variant 1. The encoded isoform (2, also known as deltaZip2) has a distinct and shorter C-terminus, compared to isoform 1. Isoform 2 lacks the leucine zipper protein-dimerization motif and does not bind to DNA, and it stimulates transcription presumably by sequestering inhibitory co-factors away from the promoter.

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (5) differs in the 5' UTR, lacks a portion of the 5' coding region, and uses a downstream in-frame start codon, compared to variant 1. The encoded isoform (3) is shorter at the N-terminus, compared to isoform 1. Both variants 5 and 8 encode isoform 3.

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (7) differs in the 5' UTR, lacks an in-frame segment of the 5' coding region, and contains an alternate terminal exon, thus differing in the 3' coding region and 3' UTR, compared to variant 1. The encoded isoform (5, also known as deltaZip2c) has a distinct C-terminus and is shorter than isoform 1.
