Transcription factor MafB - P54841 (MAFB_MOUSE)

 

Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Number of PDB entries for P54841: 3
 
Function
Acts as a transcriptional activator or repressor. Plays a pivotal role in regulating lineage-specific hematopoiesis by repressing ETS1-mediated transcription of erythroid-specific genes in myeloid cells. Required for monocytic, macrophage, podocyte and islet beta cell differentiation. Involved in renal tubule survival and F4/80 maturation. Activates the insulin and glucagon promoters. Together with PAX6, transactivates weakly the glucagon gene promoter through the G1 element. SUMO modification controls its transcriptional activity and ability to specify macrophage fate. Binds element G1 on the glucagon promoter. Involved either as an oncogene or as a tumor suppressor, depending on the cell context. (data source: UniProt  )
Subunit structure
Homodimer or heterodimer with other bHLH-Zip transcription factors. Forms homodimers and heterodimers with FOS, FOSB and FOSL2, but not with JUN proteins (JUN, JUNB and JUND). Interacts with the intracellular cytoplasmic domain of LRP1 (LRPICD); the interaction results in a moderate reduction of MAFB transcriptional potential (By similarity). Binds DNA as a homodimer or a heterodimer. Interacts with PAX6; the interaction is direct. Interacts with ETS1 and LRP1. (data source: UniProt  )
Domain
The leucine-zipper domain is involved in the interaction with LRPICD. (data source: UniProt  )

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in red indicates combined ranges of Homology Models from SBKB   and the Protein Model Portal
