PEBP2/PEA2 represents a family of transcription factors homologous to the products of the Drosophila runt gene and the human AML1 gene.
cDNAs representing the alpha subunit of polyomavirus enhancer binding protein 2 (PEBP2; also called PEA2) were isolated. The products of the cDNAs are highly homologous to that of DrosophilaExpand

The Draft Genome of Ciona intestinalis: Insights into Chordate and Vertebrate Origins
The first chordates appear in the fossil record at the time of the Cambrian explosion, nearly 550 million years ago. The modern ascidian tadpole represents a plausible approximation to theseExpand

Molecular cloning and characterization of PEBP2 beta, the heterodimeric partner of a novel Drosophila runt-related DNA binding protein PEBP2 alpha.
Polyomavirus enhancer binding protein, PEBP2 (PEA2), is a heterodimer of two distinct subunits, alpha and beta, of which the former directly binds to DNA and the latter acts auxiliary to enhance theExpand

The amphioxus genome illuminates vertebrate origins and cephalochordate biology.
Cephalochordates, urochordates, and vertebrates evolved from a common ancestor over 520 million years ago. To improve our understanding of chordate evolution and the origin of vertebrates, weExpand

PEBP2 alpha B/mouse AML1 consists of multiple isoforms that possess differential transactivation potentials.
A murine transcription factor, PEBP2, is composed of two subunits, alpha and beta. There are two genes in the mouse genome, PEBP2 alpha A and PEBP2 alpha B, which encode the alpha subunit. Two typesExpand
