Summaries for NFIL3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NFIL3 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a transcriptional regulator that binds as a homodimer to activating transcription factor (ATF) sites in many cellular and viral promoters. The encoded protein represses PER1 and PER2 expression and therefore plays a role in the regulation of circadian rhythm. Three transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2014]

GeneCards Summary for NFIL3 Gene

NFIL3 (Nuclear Factor, Interleukin 3 Regulated) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NFIL3 include autism spectrum disorder and hereditary sensory neuropathy. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and RNA polymerase II core promoter proximal region sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity involved in negative regulation of transcription.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NFIL3 Gene

  • Acts as a transcriptional regulator that recognizes and binds to the sequence 5-[GA]TTA[CT]GTAA[CT]-3, a sequence present in many cellular and viral promoters. Represses transcription from promoters with activating transcription factor (ATF) sites. Represses promoter activity in osteoblasts (By similarity). Represses transcriptional activity of PER1 (By similarity). Represses transcriptional activity of PER2 via the B-site on the promoter (By similarity). Activates transcription from the interleukin-3 promoter in T-cells. Competes for the same consensus-binding site with PAR DNA-binding factors (DBP, HLF and TEF) (By similarity). Component of the circadian clock that acts as a negative regulator for the circadian expression of PER2 oscillation in the cell-autonomous core clock (By similarity). Protects pro-B cells from programmed cell death (By similarity).
