  • an N-terminal DNA-binding TEA (TEF-1, TEC1, and AbaA) domain, conserved DNA-binding TEA domain, which binds to the MCAT cis-acting regulatory element
  • a C-terminal YAP-binding domain (YBD)
    interspecies homolog to murine Tead1 (99.3pc)
    homolog to rattus Tead1 (99.5pc)

    basic FUNCTION
  • required for cardiac muscle specific genes expression
  • transduction of a variety of genes
  • playing essential roles in mediating biological functions of YAP1
  • transcriptional enhancer factor
  • directing the transactivation of several genes and in placental cells can act as a transcriptional repressor
  • inhibiting prolactin gene expression in uterine decidual cells, probably by interacting directly with other transcription factors
  • mediating activation of IFITM3 gene
  • mammalian Tead proteins regulate cell proliferation and contact inhibition as a transcriptional mediator of Hippo signaling
  • proapoptotic function for TEAD1 and a non physiological cytoprotective effect for overexpressed TEAD1
  • is an integral component of the transcription factor combinatorial code of pancreatic progenitor enhancers
  • central role for TEAD1 and YAP1 as signal-responsive regulators of multipotent pancreatic progenitors
  • TEAD1 was the major transcription factor of Hippo signaling pathway in osteosarcoma
  • TEAD1 promotes vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) proliferation via transcriptional induction of SLC1A5, thereby activating MTOR signaling and promoting neointima formation
  • cell-autonomous TEAD1 function is required for normal cardiomyocyte proliferation
  • non-redundant critical requirement for TEAD1 in regulating cell cycle proteins and proliferation in cardiomyocytes in the perinatal heart
  • CELLULAR PROCESS nucleotide, transcription, regulation
    signaling signal transduction
  • component in the Hippo pathway
  • YAP1-TEAD1 signaling induces mitochondrial biogenesis in endothelial cells (ECs) and stimulates angiogenesis through PPARGC1A
  • a component
    DNA binding specifically and cooperatively to the SPH and GT-IIC "enhansons" and activating transcription in a cell specific manner
  • binding to a TEAD1-binding site in the prolactin promoter
  • RNA
    small molecule
  • interacting with the MADS domain of SRF to coactivate the skeletal alpha-actinin promoter and with MEF2 factors (control of MEF2-dependent muscle-specific gene expression)
  • interacting with VGLL4 (modulates the activity of TEAD1 factors and counteracts alpha1-adrenergic activation of gene expression in cardiac myocytes)
  • interact with YAP1 (which lacks a DNA-binding domain but contains an activation domain) to form functional heterodimeric transcription factors that activate proliferative and prosurvival gene expression programs
  • new, BIRC7-dependent, apoptotic role for TEAD1
  • TEAD1 may mediate muscle development through its target genes, MRPL21, NDUFA6 and CCNE1
  • regulation of NAIP by TEAD1/YAP1 is at the transcriptional level
  • TEAD1 is a novel general repressor of smooth muscle-specific gene expression through interfering with MYOCD binding to SRF
  • CIZ1 enhanced the interaction between YAP1 and TEAD1
  • TEAD1 is a novel regulator of PMP22 expression during development in concert with SOX10 and EGR2
  • acetylation-mediated, VGLL4-dependent switch that regulates TEAD1 stability and YAP1-TEAD1 activity
  • VGLL4 negatively regulates the TEAD1-YAP1 transcriptional complex and exerts its growth inhibitory control through its evolutionary conserved TDU2 domain at its C-terminus
  • NUP37 interacted with YAP1 and activated YAP1/TEAD1 signaling by enhancing the interaction between YAP1 and TEAD1
  • YAP1 binds to the TEA domain (TEAD1) transcription factor and controls angiogenesis
  • TEAD1 overexpression restores AQP4 expression, and both TEAD1 and AQP4 overexpression rescue migratory deficits in TEAD1-knockout cells, implicating a direct regulatory role for TEAD1-AQP4 in glioblastoma (GBM) migration
  • SLC1A5, a key glutamine transporter, is a novel TEAD1 target gene
  • transcriptional cofactor VGLL1 plays a prominent role in HPV early gene expression, dependent on its association with the transcription factor TEAD1
  • VGLL1 and VGLL3 interact with TEAD1 via a conserved amino acid motif called the TONDU domain
