V-erbA requires auxiliary proteins for dominant negative activity.


The avian v-erbA protein is an important example of a dominant negative oncogene. It has been identified as a highly mutated form of its cellular homolog, the thyroid hormone receptor alpha (TR-alpha), and its biological activity has been correlated with its repressor function on certain receptor-regulated genes. Although v-erbA has lost the hormone… (More)
