Participates in the Wnt signaling pathway and modulates MYC expression by binding to its promoter in a sequence-specific manner. Acts as repressor in the absence of CTNNB1, and as activator in its presence. Activates transcription from promoters with several copies of the Tcf motif 5'-CCTTTGATC-3' in the presence of CTNNB1. TLE1, TLE2, TLE3 and TLE4 repress transactivation mediated by TCF7L2/TCF4 and CTNNB1. Expression of dominant-negative mutants results in cell-cycle arrest in G1. Necessary for the maintenance of the epithelial stem-cell compartment of the small intestine. Interacts with TGFB1I1. Interacts with CTNNB1 (via the armadillo repeat); forms stable transcription complex. Interacts with EP300. Interacts with NLK. Interacts with CCDC85B (probably through the HMG box); prevents interaction with CTNNB1. Interacts with TNIK. Interacts with MAD2L2; prevents TCF7L2/TCF4 binding to promZIPK/DAPK3oters, negatively modulating its transcriptional activity. Interacts with ZIPK/DAPK3. Interacts with XIAP/BIRC4 and TLE3. Detected in epithelium from small intestine, with the highest expression at the top of the crypts and a gradient of expression from crypt to villus. Detected in colon epithelium and colon cancer, and in epithelium from mammary gland and carcinomas derived therefrom. Belongs to the TCF/LEF family. 10 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
