Human Gene UTF1 (ENST00000304477.3) from GENCODE V44
  Description: Homo sapiens undifferentiated embryonic cell transcription factor 1 (UTF1), mRNA. (from RefSeq NM_003577)
RefSeq Summary (NM_003577): The protein encoded by this gene is a leucine zipper-containing transcriptional coactivator that may link the upstream activator ATF2 with the basal transcription complex. The encoded protein is closely associated with chromatin and is required for the proper differentiation of embryonic carcinoma and embryonic stem cells. Found nearly exclusively in pluripotent cells, this protein can also serve as a transcriptional repressor. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2015].

-  Comments and Description Text from UniProtKB
DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Undifferentiated embryonic cell transcription factor 1;
FUNCTION: Acts as a transcriptional coactivator of ATF2.
SUBUNIT: Binds to the N-terminal region of ATF2. Associates with the TFIID complex through interaction with TBP.
DOMAIN: The leucine-zipper domain is required for coactivation activity. When this domain is deleted, the protein is able to stimulate transcription from a number of gene promoters (By similarity).
PTM: Phosphorylated.
SEQUENCE CAUTION: Sequence=AAT38949.1; Type=Erroneous initiation;

ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on Q5T230
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.

-  Orthologous Genes in Other Species
  Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
