  • FunctionStimulates the transcription of various genes by recognizing and binding to a CCAAT motif in promoters, for example in type 1 collagen, albumin and beta-actin genes.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the NFYB/HAP3 subunit family.
  • DomainCan be divided into 3 domains: the weakly conserved A domain, the highly conserved B domain thought to be involved in subunit interaction and DNA binding, and the Glu-rich C domain.

I'm sorry to hear you are having problems with ab6559. The protein NF-YB is know to function as a heterotrimeric transcription factor when bound to NF-YA and NF-YC. It is therefore possible that the large protein observed is made of NF-YB and other ...
