The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the E2F family of transcription factors. The E2F family plays a crucial role in the control of cell cycle and action of tumor suppressor proteins and is also a target of the transforming proteins of small DNA tumor viruses. The E2F proteins contain several evolutionally conserved domains found in most members of the family. These domains include a DNA binding domain a dimerization domain which determines interaction with the differentiation regulated transcription factor proteins (DP) a transactivation domain enriched in acidic amino acids and a tumor suppressor protein association domain which is embedded within the transactivation domain. This protein and another 2 members E2F2 and E2F3 have an additional cyclin binding domain. This protein binds preferentially to retinoblastoma protein pRB in a cell-cycle dependent manner. It can mediate both cell proliferation and p53-dependent/independent apoptosis. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
