Gene: EGR1 (early growth response 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: EGR1
Name: early growth response 1
CRRD ID: 737111
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; double-stranded DNA binding activity; and histone acetyltransferase binding activity. Involved in cellular response to cytokine stimulus; positive regulation of pri-miRNA transcription by RNA polymerase II; and regulation of protein sumoylation. Localizes to cytoplasm; nuclear chromatin; and nucleoplasm. Implicated in asthma. Biomarker of several diseases, including Alzheimer's disease; artery disease (multiple); asthma; bone disease (multiple); and lung disease (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
