    basic FUNCTION
  • transcription activator
  • establishement of functional sensory-motor circuitly in the developng spinal cord
  • necessary only for TH expression and not the other cassette genes (
  • up-regulates the maturation genes in a developmentally regulated manner
  • orchestrates the activity-dependent gene regulation in the terminal maturation program and specifies the identity of cerebellar granule cells
  • enhances POMC transcription on its own and in synergy with TBX19
  • participates in a combinatorial code for pituitary cell-specific gene expression
  • activator of POMC expression with a TBX19-like pituitary expression profile
  • ETV1 transcription factor plays a key role in converging the BDNF-mediated and activity-dependent regulation of expression of the maturation genes
  • synergistic control of ETV1 by extracellular signaling and activity-dependent intrinsic regulation is crucial in directing the maturation program of the cerebellar circuit
  • promotes SNAI1 expression to induce EMT-like metastatic progression in gastric cancer
  • orchestrates the activity-dependent regulation of both maturation and immaturation genes in developing granule cells and plays a key role in specifying the identity of mature granule cells in the cerebellum
  • CELLULAR PROCESS nucleotide, transcription, regulation
    a component
    DNA binding to sequences containing the consensus pentanucleotide 5'-CGGA(AT)-3'
    small molecule
  • dysregulation of ETS family members through fusions with TMRPSS2 may be an initiating event in prostate cancer development
  • interaction with AR (indirect mechanism of AR regulation of gene expression, via the transactivation of the transcription factor ETV1) (
  • genetic interplay between the transcription factors, PAX6 and ETV1, is responsible, in part, for the regional specification of a distinct sublineage of layer 5 projection neurons
  • RFWD2 is a tumour suppressor that negatively regulates ETV1, ETV4 and ETV5
  • coordinate expression of ETV1 with POMC cell differentiation and its interaction with the highly cell-restricted TBX19 factor indicate that ETV1 participates in a combinatorial code for pituitary cell-specific gene expression
  • GRIN2C and TIAM1 maturation genes are synergistically controlled by the activity-dependent induction of ETV1 and its phosphorylation by the BDNF signaling cascade
  • BDNF-activated signaling cascades, the ERK1/2 activation results in specific phosphorylation of ETV1 in the granule cells
  • MMP7 is a bona fide ETV1 target gene, implicating that MMP7 upregulation is partially responsible for the oncogenic effects of ETV1 in the prostate
  • ETV1 and EWSR1 transactivate FGF10 directly and cooperatively in response to apical ectodermal ridge (AER)-FGFs
  • KDM4A cooperated with ETV1 to increase expression of yes associated protein 1 (YAP1), a Hippo pathway component that itself was associated with prostate tumor aggressiveness
  • cell & other
