  • Function

    Transcriptionally activator that may play a role in regulating the later stages of keratinocytes terminal differentiation.
    Isoform 2 binds to DNA sequences containing the consensus nucleotide core sequence GGA[AT]. Transcriptionally activates SPRR2A and the parotid gland-specific PSP promoters.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed exclusively in tissues with a high content of epithelial cells. Highly expressed in salivary gland, mammary gland, kidney and prostate. Weakly expressed in placenta and lung. Isoform 1 and isoform 2 are differentially expressed in different tissues. In the kidney, only isoform 1 was expressed, while prostate expressed both isoforms, with levels of isoform 2 being higher. Expression is up-regulated during keratinocyte differentiation. Several epithelial carcinoma cell lines showed lack of expression.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the ETS family.
    Contains 1 ETS DNA-binding domain.
    Contains 1 PNT (pointed) domain.
  • Domain

    The PNT domain acts as a transcriptional activator.
  • Cellular localization
