    basic FUNCTION
  • CCAAT enhancer binding protein delta (C/EBP)
  • inducing conjointly with CEBPD the induction of CEBPB and PPARG, required for adipocyte differentiation
  • STAT3 target and crucial mediator of pro-apoptotic gene expression events in mammary epithelial cells
  • tumor suppressor because that induces growth arrest involved in differentiation and plays a crucial role as a regulator of pro-apoptotic gene expression
  • are potentially key players in the integrated gene expression program involved in postnatal cardiac remodeling and maturation
  • plays a role in genome maintenance or DNA-repair pathways
  • augments cell survival after DNA damage from interstrand cross-linkers by facilitating nuclear import of FANCD2
  • role of endogenous CEBPD in nuclear translocation of FANCD2
  • CEBPD plays an essential role in HMDB (1-(2-hydroxy-5-methylphenyl)-3-phenyl-1,3-propanedione)-mediated apoptosis of cancer cells
  • necessary for efficient tumour metastasis
  • enhances MTOR/AKT/S6K1 signalling and augments translation and activity of hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF1A), which is necessary for hypoxia adaptation
  • role for astrocytic CEBPD and the CEBPD-regulated molecule PTX3 in the accumulation of damaged neurons, which is a hallmark of Alzheimer disease pathogenesis
  • CELLULAR PROCESS nucleotide, transcription
    a component
    DNA binding
    small molecule
  • interacting with STAT3
  • MYC, ZBTB17 and MAX are associated with the CEBPD promoter in proliferating cells, when CEBPD expression is repressed
  • interacts with FANCD2 (CEBPD mediates the indirect association of FANCD2 with IPO4 through its interaction with both of these proteins via separate domains)
  • inflammatory marker pentraxin-3 (PTX3) is a CEBPD target in astrocytes
  • RRAD inhibits CTGF expression through binding with CEBPD, thus regulating ECM (extracellular matrix) production in the heart
  • dual roles for JMJD6 in promoting adipogenic gene expression program by post-transcriptional regulation of CEBPB and CEBPD and direct transcriptional activation of PPARG2 and CEBPA during adipocyte differentiation
  • cell & other
    repressed by MYC, that represses CEBPD expression by associating with the CEBPD proximal promoter as a transient component of a repressive complex that includes MAX and ZBTB17
