C/EBP-epsilon Transcriptional activator. C/EBP are DNA-binding proteins that recognize two different motifs: the CCAAT homology common to many promoters and the enhanced core homology common to many enhancers. Required for the promyelocyte-myelocyte transition in myeloid differentiation. Belongs to the bZIP family. C/EBP subfamily. Strongest expression occurs in promyelocyte and late-myeloblast-like cell lines. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
