This gene encodes a member of the E protein (class I) family of helix-loop-helix transcription factors. E proteins activate transcription by binding to regulatory E-box sequences on target genes as heterodimers or homodimers and are inhibited by heterodimerization with inhibitor of DNA-binding (class IV) helix-loop-helix proteins. E proteins play a critical role in lymphopoiesis and the encoded protein is required for B and T lymphocyte development. Deletion of this gene or diminished activity of the encoded protein may play a role in lymphoid malignancies. This gene is also involved in several chromosomal translocations that are associated with lymphoid malignancies including pre-B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (t(1;19) with PBX1) childhood leukemia (t(19;19) with TFPT) and acute leukemia (t(12;19) with ZNF384). Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene and a pseudogene of this gene is located on the short arm of chromosome 9.
