Summaries for TFDP3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TFDP3 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the DP family of transcription factors. These factors heterodimerize with E2F proteins to enhance their DNA-binding activity and promote transcription from E2F target genes. This protein functions as a negative regulator and inhibits the DNA binding and transcriptional activities of E2F factors.[provided by RefSeq, May 2010]

GeneCards Summary for TFDP3 Gene

TFDP3 (Transcription Factor Dp Family, Member 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TFDP3 include hepatocellular carcinoma. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and protein heterodimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is TFDP2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TFDP3 Gene

  • Competitive inhibitor of E2F-mediated transactivation activity. Impairs E2F-mediated cell-cycle progression from G(1) to S phase.
