V-maf musculoaponeurotic fibrosarcoma oncogene homolog G

Globin gene expression is regulated through nuclear factor erythroid-2 (NFE2) elements located in enhancer-like locus control regions positioned many kb upstream of alpha- and beta-gene clusters (summarized by Blank et al., 1997 [PubMed 9166829]). NFE2 DNA-binding activity consists of a heterodimer containing a ubiquitous small Maf protein (MafF, MIM 604877; MafG; or MafK, MIM 600197) and the tissue-restricted protein p45 NFE2 (MIM 601490). Both subunits are members of the activator protein-1-like superfamily of basic leucine zipper (bZIP) proteins (see MIM 165160).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2010] (from NCBI)

Green et al., Worcester, United States. In Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, Feb 2016
In both CRC and melanoma, BRAF(V600E) promotes epigenetic silencing through up-regulation of v-maf avian musculoaponeurotic fibrosarcoma oncogene homolog G (MAFG), a transcriptional repressor with sequence-specific DNA-binding activity.

Through an RNAi screen, here we identify the transcriptional repressor MAFG as the pivotal factor required for MLH1 silencing and CIMP in CRCs containing BRAF(V600E).
Molecular mechanisms of lipopolysaccharide-mediated inhibition of glutathione synthesis in mice.
Lu et al., Los Angeles, United States. In Free Radic Biol Med, 2014
The key mechanism was a decrease in sumoylation of nuclear factor-erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) and MafG, which is required for their heterodimerization and subsequent binding and trans-activation of the antioxidant-response element (ARE) present in the promoter region of these genes that is essential for their expression.
