  • CATEGORY transcription factor
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     intracellular
    intracellular,nucleus,chromatin/chromosome
    basic FUNCTION
  • putative gene regulator for cellular mechanisms mediating neuronal excitability and survival
  • control of sensitivity to cockayne enhanced by delta FosB through changes in CDK5 level
  • implicated in the regulation of genes important for inflammation, proliferation, and differentiation and have been shown to be involved in wound healing (Neub 2007)
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell life, proliferation/growth
    cell life, antiapoptosis
    nucleotide, transcription
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS behavioral , development , nervous system
    PATHWAY
    metabolism
    signaling signal transduction
    a component
  • forming heterodimers (the AP-1 complex) with JUN family of proteins
  • INTERACTION
    DNA binding
    RNA
    small molecule
  • cockayne
  • protein
  • CDK5
  • is the mediator of SERPINB2 transactivator function explaining the orientation dependence observed for SERPINB2 transactivator activity
  • FOSB and JUN can derepress transcription from the SERPINB2 promoter which may have general significance for SERPINB2-expressing cells
