EGR3

A gene on chromosome 8p23-p21 that encodes a DNA-binding nuclear protein of the EGR family of C2H2-type zinc-finger transcriptional regulators. EGR3 plays a role in regulating the transcription of genes that control biological rhythm, and it is thought to participate in lymphocyte, muscle and neuronal development and in endothelial cell growth and migration.

Egr3 Selectively Regulates Late Phase of Arc Transcription in DG Granule Cells.
This interaction demonstrates that while Arc expression remains normal in [Egr3.sup.-/-] mice both during rest (i.e., in caged controls) and early after behavioral induction (i.e., in the 5' and 60' groups), the late phase of Arc expression (i.e., 240' and 480') is significantly reduced in mice lacking Egr3.
