FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The Myc/Max/Mad network comprises a group of transcription factors that co-interact to regulate gene-specific transcriptional activation or repression. This gene encodes a protein member of the Myc/Max/Mad network. This protein has a basic-Helix-Loop-Helix-zipper domain (bHLHzip) with which it binds the canonical DNA sequence CANNTG, known as the E box, following heterodimerization with Max proteins. This protein is likely a transcriptional repressor and an antagonist of Myc-dependent transcriptional activation and cell growth. This protein represses transcription by binding to DNA binding proteins at its N-terminal Sin3-interaction domain. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Most homozygotes for a targeted null mutation are runted at birth and die within a few days, while mutant fibroblasts show abnormal cell cycling. Those homozygotes that survive are fertile and attain normal Heterozygotes for a conditional mammary epithelial specific knockout develop adenocarcinomas. [provided by MGI curators]
