  • Function
    Transcription activator that binds DNA cooperatively with DP proteins through the E2 recognition site, 5'-TTTC[CG]CGC-3' found in the promoter region of a number of genes whose products are involved in cell cycle regulation or in DNA replication. The DRTF1/E2F complex functions in the control of cell-cycle progression from G1 to S phase. E2F-4 binds with high affinity to RBL1 and RBL2. In some instances, can also bind RB protein.
  • Tissue specificity
    Found in all tissue examined including heart, brain, placenta, lung, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the E2F/DP family.
  • Developmental stage
    Present in the growth-arrested state, its abundance does not change significantly as cells move into and through the cell cycle.
  • Post-translational
    Differentially phosphorylated in vivo.
