MEF2 transcription factors: developmental regulators and emerging cancer genes.
Vancouver, Canada. In Oncotarget, Nov 2015
UNASSIGNED: The MEF2 transcription factors have roles in muscle, cardiac, skeletal, vascular, neural, blood and immune system cell development through their effects on cell differentiation, proliferation, apoptosis, migration, shape and metabolism.

Exercise, GLUT4, and skeletal muscle glucose uptake.
Copenhagen, Denmark. In Physiol Rev, 2013
AMPK and CaMKII are key signaling kinases that appear to regulate GLUT4 expression via the HDAC4/5-MEF2 axis and MEF2-GEF interactions resulting in nuclear export of HDAC4/5 in turn leading to histone hyperacetylation on the GLUT4 promoter and increased GLUT4 transcription.
