Previous GeneCards Identifiers for CREB3L3 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the basic-leucine zipper family and the AMP-dependent transcription factor family. The encoded protein is localized to the endoplasmic reticulum and acts as a transcription factor activated by cyclic AMP stimulation. The encoded protein binds the cyclic AMP response element (CRE) and the box-B element and has been linked to acute inflammatory response, hepatocellular carcinoma, triglyceride metabolism, and hepcidin expression. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2012]
GeneCards Summary for CREB3L3 Gene
CREB3L3 (CAMP Responsive Element Binding Protein 3-Like 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CREB3L3 include hyperchylomicronemia, late-onset and hepatocellular carcinoma. Among its related pathways are cAMP signaling pathway and Insulin secretion. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is CREB3L4.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CREB3L3 Gene
Transcription factor that may act during endoplasmic reticulum stress by activating unfolded protein response target genes. Activated in response to cAMP stimulation. In vitro, binds to the cAMP response element (CRE) and box-B element. Activates transcription through box-B element. Activates transcription through CRE (By similarity). Seems to function synergistically with ATF6. In acute inflammatory response, may activate expression of acute phase response (APR) genes. May be involved in growth suppression.
