Summaries for JUN Gene

Entrez Gene Summary 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) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with JUN include hemorrhagic cystitis and sarcoma. Among its related pathways are PI-3K cascade and MAPK signaling pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and transcription coactivator activity. An important paralog of this gene is JUNB.

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.

    Quaternary structure:
    • Heterodimer with either FOS or BATF3 or ATF7. The ATF7/JUN heterodimer is essential for ATF7 transactivation activity. Interacts with DSIPI; the interaction inhibits the binding of active AP1 to its target DNA (By similarity). Interacts with HIVEP3 and MYBBP1A (By similarity). Interacts with SP1, SPIB and TCF20. Interacts with COPS5; the interaction leads indirectly to its phosphorylation. Component of the SMAD3/SMAD4/JUN/FOS/complex which forms at the AP1 promoter site. The SMAD3/SMAD4 heterodimer acts synergistically with the JUN/FOS heterodimer to activate transcription in response to TGF-beta. Interacts (via its basic DNA binding and leucine zipper domains) with SMAD3 (via an N-terminal domain); the interaction is required for TGF-beta-mediated transactivation of the SMAD3/SMAD4/JUN/FOS/complex. Interacts with methylated RNF187. Binds to HIPK3. Interacts (when phosphorylated) with FBXW7 (PubMed:14739463).

Post-translational modifications for JUN Gene

  • Acetylated at Lys-271 by EP300.
  • Phosphorylated by CaMK4 and PRKDC; phosphorylation enhances the transcriptional activity. Phosphorylated by HIPK3. Phosphorylated by DYRK2 at Ser-243; this primes the protein for subsequent phosphorylation by GSK3B at Thr-239. Phosphorylated at Thr-239, Ser-243 and Ser-249 by GSK3B; phosphorylation reduces its ability to bind DNA. Phosphorylated by PAK2 at Thr-2, Thr-8, Thr-89, Thr-93 and Thr-286 thereby promoting JUN-mediated cell proliferation and transformation. Phosphorylated by PLK3 following hypoxia or UV irradiation, leading to increase DNA-binding activity.
  • Ubiquitinated by the SCF(FBXW7), leading to its degradation. Ubiquitination takes place following phosphorylation, that promotes interaction with FBXW7.
  • Ubiquitination at Lys50
  • Modification sites at PhosphoSitePlus
