The CNC subfamily also includes NRF1 (NFE2L1/LCRF1/TCF11), NRF3 (NFE2L3), and the nuclear factor-erythroid 2 p45 subunit, as well as more distantly related factors such as BTB and CNC homology 1 (BACH1) and BACH2 protein.
The nuclear facto--erythroid-2--related factors (NRFs) belong to the cap'n'collar (CNC) subfamily of basic-region leucine zipper (bZIP) transcription factors, which include NRF1 (NFE2L1/LCRF1/TCF11), NRF2 (NFE2L2), NRF3 (NFE2L3), and the nuclear factor--erythroid 2 p45 subunit, as well as more distantly related factors such as BTB and CNC homology 1 (BACH1) and BACH2 proteins (Motohashi et al.
