a ubiquitous transcription factor that binds to the octamer motif (5'-ATTTGCAT-3') and activates the promoters of the genes for some small nuclear RNAs (snRNA) and of genes such as those for histone H2B and immunoglobulins. Modulates transcription transactivation by NR3C1, AR and PGR. Phosphorylation apparently inhibits its interaction with DNA. Four splice variant isoforms have been described. Isoform 2 is lymphocyte specific. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: Transcription factor; DNA binding protein
Cellular Component: nucleoplasm; nucleus
Molecular Function: protein binding; sequence-specific DNA binding; transcription factor activity
Biological Process: transcription from RNA polymerase III promoter; gene expression; negative regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent
SS: The number of records in which this modification site was determined using site-specific methods. SS methods include amino acid sequencing, site-directed mutagenesis, modification site-specific antibodies, specific MS strategies, etc.
