a proto-oncogenic transcription factor homologous to the v-ets erythroblastosis virus oncogene. The DNA binding activity of Ets1 is controlled by kinases and transcription factors. It contributes to the regulation of cellular differentiation in hematopoietic cells. Ets1 promotes invasive behavior in endothelial cells, vascular smooth muscle cells and epithelial cancer cells. Regulates the expression of MMP1, MMP3, MMP9 and uPA as well as of VEGF and VEGFR gene expression. Two alternatively spliced isoforms have been described. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
