WBP2 Acts as transcriptional coactivator of estrogen and progesterone receptors (ESR1 and PGR) upon hormone activation. In presence of estrogen, binds to ESR1-responsive promoters. Required for YAP1 coactivation function on PGR activity. Synergizes with WBP2 in enhancing PGR activity. Modulates expression of post-synaptic scaffolding proteins via regulation of ESR1, ESR2 and PGR. Ubiquitous. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported.
