    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     plasma membrane
    basic FUNCTION
  • regulating transcription
  • having a role in progression of breast cancer
  • role of adaptor molecule in the interactions of adhesion receptors and intracellular tyrosine kinases
  • is required for spermatogonial stem cell self-renewal
  • pivotal and complementary roles of ETV4 and ETV5 transcription factors in events crucial to mammary tumorigenesis
  • regulate growth cone and coordinate membrane and actin dynamics in responses to SEMA3A
  • with ETV4, are key components of a gene network downstream of Ret that promotes and controls renal branching morphogenesis
  • important factor for the self-renewal of Spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs) and the maintenance of spermatogenesis
  • directly regulates CXCL12 gene expression by interacting with its cis-acting element in response to FGF2 stimulation in Sertoli cells
  • plays important roles in development and tumorigenesis
  • having a direct role on epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT)
  • ETV4 and ETV5 are essential molecules of the transcriptional program linking neurotrophin signaling to sensory neuronal differentiation, suggesting that they can be involved in NGF-mediated target innervation
  • is a transcription factor that is required for fertility
  • physiological role for ETV5 in many aspects of development including embryonic and perinatal survival, postnatal growth, limb patterning, kidney development and fertility
  • is a signal transducer and activator of transcription 3-induced positive regulator of TH17 development
  • ETV4 and ETV5, potentially through regulation of GBX2 and TCF15, are involved in the ES cell proliferation and induction of differentiation-associated genes in ES cells
  • ETV5 and SPI1 function in parallel to promote Th9 cell development
  • ETV5 is a transcription factor responsible for maintaining the spermatogonial stem cell niche
  • ETV5 plays a crucial role in regulating IL10 production in Th2 cells by facilitating the binding of IL10-inducing transcription factors at the IL10 locus
  • ETV5 is a critical output of RAS signaling in alveolar type II (AT2) cells, contributing to both lung homeostasis and tumor initiation
  • regulates ductal morphogenesis with SOX9 and is critical for regeneration from pancreatitis
  • CELLULAR PROCESS nucleotide, transcription, regulation
    a component
    DNA binding to sequences containing the consensus pentanucleotide 5'-CGGA(AT)-3'
    small molecule
  • RFWD2 is a tumour suppressor that negatively regulates ETV1, ETV4 and ETV5
  • ETV5 modulated ZEB1 expression and CDH1 repression leading to a complete reorganization of cell-cell and cell-substrate contacts
  • FGF2 depends on MAP2K1 signaling to drive spermatogonial stem cell (SSC) self-renewal via upregulation of the ETV5 and BCL6B genes
  • SOX9 regulation of ETV5 contributes to the control of male fertility
  • ETV5 could transactivate GHRL promoter region and increase its expression, leading to subsequent increase in the production of acyl ghrelin
  • cell & other
    inhibited by SUMO modification
    Other gene expression is regulated by the PKC pathway

    Candidate gene
    Therapy target
    mice with targeted disruption of ETV5 have a loss of maintenance of spermatogonial stem cell self-renewal without a block in normal spermatogenic differentiation and thus have progressive germ-cell depletion and Sertoli-cell-only syndrome
