Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0001678
UniProt IDO15525
Primary gene name(s)MAFG
Synonym gene name(s)unknown
Protein nameTranscription factor MafG
Protein functionSince they lack a putative transactivation domain, the small Mafs behave as transcriptional repressors when they dimerize among themselves. However, they seem to serve as transcriptional activators by dimerizing with other, usually larger basic-zipper proteins and recruiting them to specific DNA-binding sites. Small Maf proteins heterodimerize with Fos and may act as competitive repressors of the NF-E2 transcription factor. Transcription factor, component of erythroid-specific transcription factor NF-E2. Activates globin gene expression when associated with NF-E2. May be involved in signal transduction of extracellular H(+, By similarity. {ECO:0000250, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11154691}.
Subcellular locationNucleus {ECO:0000255|PROSITE-ProRule:PRU00978, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11154691}.
