Summaries for CREB5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CREB5 Gene

  • The product of this gene belongs to the CRE (cAMP response element)-binding protein family. Members of this family contain zinc-finger and bZIP DNA-binding domains. The encoded protein specifically binds to CRE as a homodimer or a heterodimer with c-Jun or CRE-BP1, and functions as a CRE-dependent trans-activator. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CREB5 Gene

CREB5 (CAMP Responsive Element Binding Protein 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are AMP-activated Protein Kinase (AMPK) Signaling and Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus infection. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is ATF2.
