PBX1 (P40424) - Overview - Molecular Target Synopsis
PBX1, Pre-B-cell leukemia transcription factor 1
Also Known as PBX1_HUMAN, PBX1, PRL
Binds the sequence 5'-ATCAATCAA-3'. Acts as a transcriptional activator of PF4 in complex with MEIS1. Converted into a potent transcriptional activator by the (1;19) translocation. May have a role in steroidogenesis and, subsequently, sexual development and differentiation. Isoform PBX1b as part of a PDX1:PBX1b:MEIS2b complex in pancreatic acinar cells is involved in the transcriptional activation of the ELA1 enhancer; the complex binds to the enhancer B element and cooperates with the transcription factor 1 complex (PTF1) bound to the enhancer A element. Probably in complex with MEIS2, is involved in transcriptional regulation by KLF4. Acts as a transcriptional activator of NKX2-5 and a transcriptional repressor of CDKN2B. Together with NKX2-5, it is required for spleen development through a mechanism that involves CDKN2B repression. Forms a heterodimer with MEIS1 which binds DNA including a cAMP-responsive sequence in CYP17. Also forms heterotrimers with MEIS1 and a number of HOX proteins including HOXA9, HOXD4, HOXD9 and HOXD10. Interacts with PBXIP1 and TLX1. Isoform PBX1a interacts with MEIS2 isoform 4, SP1, SP3 and KLF4. Isoform PBX1b is part of a PDX1:PBX1b:MEIS2b complex; PBX1b recruits Meis2B to the complex. Interacts with FOXC1 (PubMed:15684392).
