CBF binds to the core site, 5'-PYGPYGGT-3', of a number of enhancers and promoters, including murine leukemia virus, polyomavirus enhancer, T-cell receptor enhancers, lck, IL-3 and GM-CSF promoters. Heterodimer of an alpha and a beta subunit. The alpha subunit binds DNA as a monomer and through the Runt domain. DNA- binding is increased by heterodimerization. Interacts with TLE1 and SUV39H1. The tyrosine phosphorylated form (via runt domain) interacts with SRC (via protein kinase domain). Interacts with FYN and LCK. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
