Binds to the PU-box, a purine-rich DNA sequence (5'- GAGGAA-3') that can act as a lymphoid-specific enhancer. This protein is a transcriptional activator that may be specifically involved in the differentiation or activation of macrophages or B- cells. Also binds RNA and may modulate pre-mRNA splicing. Binds DNA as a monomer. Interacts with CEBPD and NONO. Interacts with RUNX1 and SPIB. Interacts with GFI1; the interaction represses SPI1 transcriptional activity. Highly expressed in both FV-P and FV-A-induced erythro- leukemia cell lines that have undergone rearrangements of the Spi- 1 gene due to the insertion of SFFV. Belongs to the ETS family. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
