ID (inhibitor of DNA binding) HLH proteins lack a basic DNA-binding domain but are able to form heterodimers with other HLH proteins, thereby inhibiting DNA binding. ID-3 inhibits the binding of E2A-containing protein complexes to muscle creatine kinase E-box enhancer. May inhibit other transcription factors. Induced by phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA). Interacts with COPS5 and COPS7A. Homodimer, and heterodimer with other HLH proteins. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: DNA-binding; Transcription, coactivator/corepressor
