Summaries for E2F8 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for E2F8 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of a family of transcription factors which regulate the expression of genes required for progression through the cell cycle. The encoded protein regulates progression from G1 to S phase by ensuring the nucleus divides at the proper time. Multiple alternatively spliced variants, encoding the same protein, have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2012]

GeneCards Summary for E2F8 Gene

E2F8 (E2F Transcription Factor 8) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and identical protein binding. An important paralog of this gene is E2F7.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for E2F8 Gene

  • Atypical E2F transcription factor that participates in various processes such as angiogenesis and polyploidization of specialized cells. Mainly acts as a transcription repressor that binds DNA independently of DP proteins and specifically recognizes the E2 recognition site 5-TTTC[CG]CGC-3. Directly represses transcription of classical E2F transcription factors such as E2F1: component of a feedback loop in S phase by repressing the expression of E2F1, thereby preventing p53/TP53-dependent apoptosis. Plays a key role in polyploidization of cells in placenta and liver by regulating the endocycle, probably by repressing genes promoting cytokinesis and antagonizing action of classical E2F proteins (E2F1, E2F2 and/or E2F3). Required for placental development by promoting polyploidization of trophoblast giant cells. Acts as a promoter of sprouting angiogenesis, possibly by acting as a transcription activator: associates with HIF1A, recognizes and binds the VEGFA promoter, which is different from canonical E2 recognition site, and activates expression of the VEGFA gene.

E2F8_HUMAN :
  • In contrast to classical members of the E2F transcription factor, atypical members contain 2 DNA-binding domains and regulate transcription in a DP-independent manner. Both DNA-binding domains are required for DNA-binding and are proposed to form an intramolecular structure that is similar to the winged helix structure of the E2F-DP heterodimer (By similarity).
  • Belongs to the E2F/DP family.
