  • FunctionTranscription factor that acts during endoplasmic reticulum stress by activating unfolded protein response target genes. Binds DNA on the 5'-CCAC[GA]-3'half of the ER stress response element (ERSE) (5'-CCAAT-N(9)-CCAC[GA]-3') and of ERSE II (5'-ATTGG-N-CCACG-3'). Binding to ERSE requires binding of NF-Y to ERSE. Could also be involved in activation of transcription by the serum response factor.
  • Tissue specificityUbiquitous.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the bZIP family. ATF subfamily.
    Contains 1 bZIP domain.
  • DomainThe basic domain functions as a nuclear localization signal.
    The basic leucine-zipper domain is sufficient for association with the NF-Y trimer and binding to ERSE.
  • Post-translational
    During unfolded protein response an approximative 50 kDa fragment containing the cytoplasmic transcription factor domain is released by proteolysis. The cleavage seems to be performed sequentially by site-1 and site-2 proteases.
    N-glycosylated. The glycosylation status may serve as a sensor for ER homeostasis, resulting in ATF6 activation to trigger the unfolded protein response (UPR).
    Phosphorylated in vitro by MAPK14/P38MAPK.
  • Cellular localizationEndoplasmic reticulum membrane and Nucleus. Under ER stress the cleaved N-terminal cytoplasmic domain translocates into the nucleus.
