Previous GeneCards Identifiers for JUN Gene
This gene is the putative transforming gene of avian sarcoma virus 17. It encodes a protein which is highly similar to the viral protein, and which interacts directly with specific target DNA sequences to regulate gene expression. This gene is intronless and is mapped to 1p32-p31, a chromosomal region involved in both translocations and deletions in human malignancies. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for JUN Gene
JUN (Jun Proto-Oncogene, AP-1 Transcription Factor Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with JUN include Sarcoma and Esophageal Adenosquamous Carcinoma. Among its related pathways are TRAF Pathway and Development VEGF signaling via VEGFR2 - generic cascades. GO annotations related to this gene include poly(A) RNA binding and sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is JUND.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for JUN Gene
Transcription factor that recognizes and binds to the enhancer heptamer motif 5-TGA[CG]TCA-3. Promotes activity of NR5A1 when phosphorylated by HIPK3 leading to increased steroidogenic gene expression upon cAMP signaling pathway stimulation. Involved in activated KRAS-mediated transcriptional activation of USP28 in colorectal cancer (CRC) cells (PubMed:24623306). Binds to the USP28 promoter in colorectal cancer (CRC) cells (PubMed:24623306).
