E2F4

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.

By contrast, the transcription repressor subfamily member E2F4 was able to inhibit transcription of proapoptotic genes E2F1 and Apaf-1 and antagonize hypoxia-induced cardiomyocyte death [240].

Dingar and colleagues utilized chromatin immunoprecipitation to determine that the E2F transcription factor 4 (E2F4)-p130-repressor directly blocks transcription of essential apoptosis-related genes, E2F1, Apaf-1, and p73a, through recruitment of HDAC1 causing apoptosis.

E2F4, as well as ZNF207, was activated within the deterioration of AD.
ENO1 was regulated by ZNF207, BUB3, PTBP1, E2F4, POLR2E, and STIP1.
Expression of several genes appeared to be down regulated, including FOXM1 , thought to be a direct target of hedgehog signaling; K167, function unkown; and Retinoblastoma (RB), E2F2, and E2F4. RB and E2F4 have been shown necessary for erythroid maturation in knockout mice, suggesting a partial mechanism for the cyclopamine-induced delay of erythroid maturation.
