ATF-2 a transcription factor that is a member of the leucine zipper family. Binds to the cAMP-responsive element (CRE). Forms a homodimer or heterodimer with c-Jun and stimulates CRE-dependent transcription. Also possesses histone acetyltransferase (HAT) activity that specifically acetylates histones H2B and H4 in vitro. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
