Human Gene NAB2 (ENST00000300131.8) from GENCODE V44
  Description: Homo sapiens NGFI-A binding protein 2 (NAB2), transcript variant 1, mRNA. (from RefSeq NM_005967)
RefSeq Summary (NM_005967): This gene encodes a member of the family of NGFI-A binding (NAB) proteins, which function in the nucleus to repress transcription induced by some members of the EGR (early growth response) family of transactivators. NAB proteins can homo- or hetero-multimerize with other EGR or NAB proteins through a conserved N-terminal domain, and repress transcription through two partially redundant C-terminal domains. Transcriptional repression by the encoded protein is mediated in part by interactions with the nucleosome remodeling and deactylase (NuRD) complex. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described, but their biological validity has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008].

-  Comments and Description Text from UniProtKB
DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=NGFI-A-binding protein 2; AltName: Full=EGR-1-binding protein 2; AltName: Full=Melanoma-associated delayed early response protein; Short=Protein MADER;
FUNCTION: Acts as a transcriptional repressor for zinc finger transcription factors EGR1 and EGR2. Isoform 2 lacks repression ability (By similarity).
SUBUNIT: Homomultimers may associate with EGR1 bound to DNA (By similarity).
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus (By similarity). Note=Isoform 2 is not localized to the nucleus (By similarity).
TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Widely expressed at low levels. Highly expressed in melanoma cell lines.
INDUCTION: By serum and phorbol myristate acetate (PMA) stimulation.
DOMAIN: The NAB conserved domain 1 (NCD1) interacts with EGR1 inhibitory domain and mediates multimerization.
DOMAIN: The NAB conserved domain 2 (NCD2) is necessary for transcriptional repression.
PTM: Sumoylation by EGR2 represses EGR2 transcriptional activity in hindbrain.
SIMILARITY: Belongs to the NAB family.

ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on Q15742
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.

-  Orthologous Genes in Other Species
  Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
