MEF2 transcription factors: developmental regulators and emerging cancer genes.
Vancouver, Canada. In Oncotarget, 25 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.
Marek's disease: Genetic regulation of gallid herpesvirus 2 infection and latency.

kb mRNA, and also modulates expression of cellular genes, such as Bcl-2 and matrix metalloproteinase 3. GaHV-2 expresses viral telomerase RNA subunit (vTR), which forms a complex with the cellular telomerase reverse transcriptase (TERT), thus contributing to tumorigenesis, while vTR independent of telomerase activity is implicated in metastasis.
Protein Phosphatase 1 is a key player in nuclear events.
Aveiro, Portugal. In Cell Signal, Sep 2015
In fact PP1 can associate with transcription factors fulfilling an important regulatory function, in this respect it can bind to Hox11, human factor C1 (HCF1) and myocyte enhancer factor-2 (MEF2).
Screening feature genes of lung carcinoma with DNA microarray analysis.
Wuhan, China. In Int J Clin Exp Med, Dec 2014
The transcription biding site analysis showed that these genes were regulated by LHX3, HNF3B, CDP, HFH1, FOXO4, STAT, SOX5, MEF2, FOXO3 and SRY.
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.
