E2F4 (redirected from E2F-4)
E2F4 A gene on chromosome 16q21-q22 that encodes a member of the E2F family of DNA-binding transcription factors, which play a key role in regulating the cell cycle and tumour suppressor proteins. E2F4 binds to tumour suppressor proteins p107 and p130, and also (though with less affinity) to retinoblastoma protein pRB.

As for the Aurora-A promoter, also the Aurora-B promoter possesses the CDE and CHR elements, though responsible for the cell cycle regulation of its expression, and several CDE-binding proteins have been identified by means of electrophoretic mobility shift assay and biotinstreptavidin pull-down assay, including the E2F-1, E2F-4
, and DP-2 .
In addition, microsatellite mutations in the IGF2R gene and transcription factor E2F-4
gene have also been detected.
