    basic FUNCTION
  • endogenous ATF6B moderated ER stress-response gene induction
  • may serve as a transcriptional repressor functioning in part to regulate the strength and duration of ATF6-mediated ER stress-response gene activation during the ER stress response
  • ATF6 and ATF6B, are cleaved during the ER stress response (ERSR)
  • relative levels of ATF6 and ATF6B, may contribute to regulating the strength and duration of ATF6-dependent ERSR gene induction and cell viability
  • key transcriptional repressor of ATF6, which contribute to regulating the strength and duration of ATF6-dependent ER stress response (ERSR) gene induction
  • unglycosylated ATF6B may directly facilitate the expression of ERSR genes by losing its repressor function to ATF6
  • CELLULAR PROCESS nucleotide, transcription
