Summaries for MAFG Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MAFG Gene

  • Globin gene expression is regulated through nuclear factor erythroid-2 (NFE2) elements located in enhancer-like locus control regions positioned many kb upstream of alpha- and beta-gene clusters (summarized by Blank et al., 1997 [PubMed 9166829]). NFE2 DNA-binding activity consists of a heterodimer containing a ubiquitous small Maf protein (MafF, MIM 604877; MafG; or MafK, MIM 600197) and the tissue-restricted protein p45 NFE2 (MIM 601490). Both subunits are members of the activator protein-1-like superfamily of basic leucine zipper (bZIP) proteins (see MIM 165160).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2010]

GeneCards Summary for MAFG Gene

MAFG (MAF BZIP Transcription Factor G) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MAFG include Fibrosarcoma. Among its related pathways are NRF2 pathway and Response to elevated platelet cytosolic Ca2+. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include DNA binding transcription factor activity and protein heterodimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is MAFK.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MAFG Gene

  • Since they lack a putative transactivation domain, the small Mafs behave as transcriptional repressors when they dimerize among themselves (PubMed:11154691). However, they seem to serve as transcriptional activators by dimerizing with other (usually larger) basic-zipper proteins, such as NFE2, NFE2L1 and NFE2L2, and recruiting them to specific DNA-binding sites (PubMed:8932385, PubMed:9421508, PubMed:11154691). Small Maf proteins heterodimerize with Fos and may act as competitive repressors of the NFE2L2 transcription factor (PubMed:11154691). Transcription factor, component of erythroid-specific transcription factor NFE2L2 (PubMed:11154691). Activates globin gene expression when associated with NFE2L2 (PubMed:11154691). May be involved in signal transduction of extracellular H(+) (By similarity).

    • Homodimer or heterodimer. Homodimerization leads to transcriptional repression. Forms high affinity heterodimers with members of the CNC-bZIP family such as NFE2, NFE2L1/NRF1, NFE2L2/NRF2 and NFE2L3/NRF3 (PubMed:8932385, PubMed:9421508, PubMed:11154691). Interacts with CREBBP; the interaction leads to acetylation of the basic region of MAFG and stimulation of NFE2 transcriptional activity through increased DNA binding.
