Previous Symbols for ETS1 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the ETS family of transcription factors, which are defined by the presence of a conserved ETS DNA-binding domain that recognizes the core consensus DNA sequence GGAA/T in target genes. These proteins function either as transcriptional activators or repressors of numerous genes, and are involved in stem cell development, cell senescence and death, and tumorigenesis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Jul 2011]
GeneCards Summary for ETS1 Gene
ETS1 (V-Ets Avian Erythroblastosis Virus E26 Oncogene Homolog 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ETS1 include jacobsen syndrome. Among its related pathways are Ras signaling pathway and Pathways in cancer. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and transcription factor binding. An important paralog of this gene is ETV2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ETS1 Gene
Transcription factor. Directly controls the expression of cytokine and chemokine genes in a wide variety of different cellular contexts. May control the differentiation, survival and proliferation of lymphoid cells. May also regulate angiogenesis through regulation of expression of genes controlling endothelial cell migration and invasion.
