MAF bZIP transcription factor B

ENTREZID: 9935 | Type: NA | Map: 20q12

OMIM: 300335

Summary Entrez
The protein encoded by this gene is a basic leucine zipper (bZIP) transcription factor that plays an important role in the regulation of lineage-specific hematopoiesis. The encoded nuclear protein represses ETS1-mediated transcription of erythroid-specific genes in myeloid cells. This gene contains no introns. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
