Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0001677
UniProt IDQ9ULX9
Primary gene name(s)MAFF
Synonym gene name(s)unknown
Protein nameTranscription factor MafF
Protein functionInteracts with the upstream promoter region of the oxytocin receptor gene. May be a transcriptional enhancer in the up-regulation of the oxytocin receptor gene at parturition. Since it lacks a putative transactivation domain, it may behave as a transcriptional repressor when it dimerize among himself. May also serve as a transcriptional activator by dimerizing with other, usually larger basic-zipper proteins and recruiting them to specific DNA-binding sites. May be involved in the cellular stress response.
