Previous GeneCards Identifiers for HIVEP3 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 enhancer-binding protein family. Members of this protein family contain multiple zinc finger and acid-rich (ZAS) domains and serine-threonine rich regions. This protein acts as a transcription factor and is able to regulate nuclear factor kappaB-mediated transcription by binding the kappaB motif in target genes. This protein also binds the recombination signal sequence that flanks the V, D, and J regions of immunoglobulin and T-cell receptors. Alternate splicing results in both coding and non-coding transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2011]
GeneCards Summary for HIVEP3 Gene
HIVEP3 (Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type I Enhancer Binding Protein 3) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is HIVEP2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HIVEP3 Gene
Plays a role of transcription factor; binds to recognition signal sequences (Rss heptamer) for somatic recombination of immunoglobulin and T-cell receptor gene segments; Binds also to the kappa-B motif of gene such as S100A4, involved in cell progression and differentiation. Kappa-B motif is a gene regulatory element found in promoters and enhancers of genes involved in immunity, inflammation, and growth and that responds to viral antigens, mitogens, and cytokines. Involvement of HIVEP3 in cell growth is strengthened by the fact that its down-regulation promotes cell cycle progression with ultimate formation of multinucleated giant cells. Strongly inhibits TNF-alpha-induced NF-kappa-B activation; Interferes with nuclear factor NF-kappa-B by several mechanisms: as transcription factor, by competing for Kappa-B motif and by repressing transcription in the nucleus; through a non transcriptional process, by inhibiting nuclear translocation of RELA by association with TRAF2, an adapter molecule in the tumor necrosis factor signaling, which blocks the formation of IKK complex. Interaction with TRAF proteins inhibits both NF-Kappa-B-mediated and c-Jun N-terminal kinase/JNK-mediated responses that include apoptosis and proinflammatory cytokine gene expression. Positively regulates the expression of IL2 in T-cell. Essential regulator of adult bone formation.
