    interspecies homolog to murine Klf3
    Homologene
    FAMILY
  • CACCC binding zinc finger family
  • krueppel C2H2-type zinc-finger protein family
  • CATEGORY regulatory , transcription factor
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     intracellular

    basic FUNCTION
  • transcriptional corepressor with CTBP1 involved in hematopoiesis
  • transcriptional regulator of muscle genes, which may play an important role in muscle differentiation
  • CACCC box binding factor in erythroid cells, and bind C(A/C)CACCC with particularly high affinity
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell life, differentiation

    INTERACTION
    DNA binding CACCC box containing proteins
    RNA
    small molecule
    protein
  • CTBP1 acting with KLF3 as a repressor for a number of transcription factors
  • associate with CTBP2 and FHL3, which mediate its repressive effects on gene transcription
  • binds the CEBPA promoter and both are implicated in controlling adipogenesis
  • represses the Klf8 (Krüppel-like Factor 8) gene
  • interacting with SRF (physically associate and synergize in transactivating the CKM (Muscle creatine kinase) promoter independently of SRF binding to CArG motifs
  • cell & other
