CREB1

A gene on chromosome 2q34 that encodes a transcription factor of the leucine zipper family of DNA binding proteins, which binds as a homodimer to the cAMP-responsive element. CREB1 is phosphorylated by several protein kinases, and induces transcription of genes in response to hormonal stimulation of the cAMP pathway.

PCB 153 requires three steps to reach cyclin D1 (through PXR and CREB1); it requires the same intermediate steps to reach IL-8.
