Entrez Gene Summary for NFE4 Gene

  • The erythroid-specific protein encoded by this gene, and the ubiquitous transcription factor CP2, form the stage selector protein (SSP) complex, which is involved in preferential expression of the gamma-globin genes in fetal erythroid cells. Alternate use of an in-frame upstream non-AUG (CUG) translation initiation codon, and a downstream AUG codon, results in two isoforms. While the long isoform (22 kDa) acts as an activator, the short isoform (14 kDa) has been shown to repress gamma-globin gene expression. This gene is located in an intron of the FBXL13 gene on the opposite strand. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for NFE4 Gene

NFE4 (Nuclear Factor, Erythroid 4) is a Protein Coding gene.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NFE4 Gene

  • Functions as part of the SSP (stage selector protein) complex, a complex that contributes to the preferential expression of the gamma-gene in fetal erythroid cells by facilitating the interaction of the gamma-globin genes with enhancer elements contained in the locus control region (LCR). The complex binds to the stage selector element (SSE) in the proximal gamma-globin promoter. In contrast, isoform 2 acts as a repressor of gamma-globin gene expression by preventing NFE2 and RNA polymerase II recruitment to the promoter.

Post-translational modifications for NFE4 Gene

  • Acetylation at Lys-43 prolongs the protein half-life by preventing ubiquitin-mediated degradation and reduces the interaction between NF-E4 and HDAC1, potentially maximizing the activating ability of the factor at the gamma-promoter.
  • Ubiquitinated; leading to its degradation by the proteasome. Acetylation at Lys-43 prevents ubiquitination.
