  • Activating Transcription Factor‐2 is a sequence‐specific DNA‐binding protein that belongs to the bZIP family of proteins and plays diverse roles in the mammalian cells. In response to stress stimuli, it activates a variety of gene targets including cyclin A, cyclin D and c‐jun, which are involved in oncogenesis in various tissue types. ATF‐2 expression has been correlated with maintenance of a cancer cell phenotype. However, other studies demonstrate an antiproliferative or apoptotic role for… CONTINUE READING
