CBF binds to the core site, 5'-PYGPYGGT-3', of a number of enhancers and promoters, including murine leukemia virus, polyomavirus enhancer, T-cell receptor enhancers, LCK, IL3 and GM- CSF promoters. CBFB enhances DNA binding by RUNX1. A chromosomal aberration involving CBFB is associated with acute myeloid leukemia of M4EO subtype. Pericentric inversion inv(16)(p13;q22). The inversion produces a fusion protein that consists of the 165 N-terminal residues of CBF-beta (PEPB2) with the tail region of MYH11. Belongs to the CBF-beta family. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
