Previous GeneCards Identifiers for TFDP1 Gene
This gene encodes a member of a family of transcription factors that heterodimerize with E2F proteins to enhance their DNA-binding activity and promote transcription from E2F target genes. The encoded protein functions as part of this complex to control the transcriptional activity of numerous genes involved in cell cycle progression from G1 to S phase. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. Pseudogenes of this gene are found on chromosomes 1, 15, and X.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2009]
GeneCards Summary for TFDP1 Gene
TFDP1 (Transcription Factor Dp-1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TFDP1 include Retinoblastoma. Among its related pathways are Regulation of retinoblastoma protein and Regulation of nuclear SMAD2/3 signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and transcription coactivator activity. An important paralog of this gene is TFDP3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TFDP1 Gene
Can stimulate E2F-dependent transcription. Binds DNA cooperatively with E2F family members through the E2 recognition site, 5-TTTC[CG]CGC-3, found in the promoter region of a number of genes whose products are involved in cell cycle regulation or in DNA replication. The E2F1:DP complex appears to mediate both cell proliferation and apoptosis. Blocks adipocyte differentiation by repressing CEBPA binding to its target gene promoters (PubMed:20176812).
