PHYSICAL PROPERTIES

motifs/domains
  • putative transactivation domain rich in proline and alanine at the N terminus (3PXXP motifs) associating with SH3 domain of tyrosine kinases
  • a highly conserved 81 AA DNA binding domain
  • a repression domain
  • a nuclear localization signal (NLS)
  • three Sp1-like zinc finger motifs at the C terminus
  • HOMOLOGY
    Homologene
    FAMILY
  • Sp1 C2H2-type zinc-finger protein family
  • CATEGORY regulatory , transcription factor
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     intracellular

    basic FUNCTION
  • activation of globin genes, predominantly gamma and a wide range of genes in cells of erythroid lineage
  • important component of the transcription network required for heart development
  • is involved in the normal control of erythropoiesis
  • involved in the development of B and T cells at multiple stages
  • involved at multiple different checkpoints in development that require signalling through the TCR, pre-BCR or mature BCR
  • key role for KLF13 in the expression of IL-4 in CD4(+) T cells
  • CELLULAR PROCESS nucleotide, transcription

    small molecule
    protein
  • repressing CYP1A1 gene promoter via the BTE site
  • KLF13 binds proximal LDLR DNA sequences and exogenous oxysterol up-regulates such binding
  • binding the CTCB box and activating RANTES (CCL5)
  • interaction with GATA4, a dosage-sensitive cardiac regulator (may be GATA4 modifier)
  • controls the late (3-5 days after activation) expression of CCL5 in T lymphocytes and that KLF13 itself is translationally regulated through the 5prime -untranslated region of its mRNA
  • key role for KLF13 in the expression of IL4 in CD4(+) T cells
  • KLF13 cooperates with MAF to regulate IL4 expression in CD4+ T cells
  • cell & other
    REGULATION
    Other activated after T cell activation with other genes and allowing T cells to rapidly adjust CCL5 expression in response to changes in cellular environment stress or growth factors

    ANIMAL & CELL MODELS
  • viable Klf13(-/-) mice had reduced numbers of circulating erythrocytes and a larger spleen
  • in murine T lymphocytes, Klf13 protein is abundant because of the absence of Fbxw7
