Along with E2F7, inhibitor of E2F-dependent transcription. Binds DNA independently of DP proteins through the E2 recognition site, 5'-TTTC[CG]CGC-3'. Directly represses E2F1 transcription. Appears to regulate a subset of E2F-dependent genes whose products are required for normal cell cycle progession.
Belongs to the E2F/DP family.
Both DNA-binding domains are required for DNA-binding and are proposed to form an intramolecular structure that is similar to the winged helix structure of the E2F-DP heterodimer.
