CEBPB

A gene on chromosome 20q13.1 that encodes a transcription factor which binds as a homodimer to various DNA regulatory regions, and as a heterodimer to CEBP-beta, CEBP-delta and CEBP-gamma. CEBP-beta binds to regulatory regions—e.g., IL-1 response element in IL-6 gene—of genes involved in immune and inflammatory responses.

The return of 56% of the CRP1 land to agriculture reduced total C in comparison to CRP2 and CRP3.
The C sequestration potential of grassland and forestland can be compared in the CRP2 because land area does not change.
However, the overall rate of C sequestration for CRP3 forestland was 18% less than that for CRP2 forestland because of the slow growth rate of the small trees planted during the second decade.
