Nuclear factor of activated T-cells, cytoplasmic 2
is a protein
Proteins are biochemical compounds consisting of one or more polypeptides typically folded into a globular or fibrous form, facilitating a biological function. A polypeptide is a single linear polymer chain of amino acids bonded together by peptide bonds between the carboxyl and amino groups of...
that in humans is encoded by the NFATC2 gene
A gene is a molecular unit of heredity of a living organism. It is a name given to some stretches of DNA and RNA that code for a type of protein or for an RNA chain that has a function in the organism. Living beings depend on genes, as they specify all proteins and functional RNA chains...
NFAT transcription factors are implicated in breast cancer, more specifically in the process of cell motility at the basis of metastasis formation. Indeed NFAT1 (NFATC2) is pro-invasive and pro-migratory in breast carcinoma
NFATC2 has been shown to interact
Protein–protein interactions occur when two or more proteins bind together, often to carry out their biological function. Many of the most important molecular processes in the cell such as DNA replication are carried out by large molecular machines that are built from a large number of protein...
Myocyte-specific enhancer factor 2D is a protein that in humans is encoded by the MEF2D gene.-Interactions:MEF2D has been shown to interact with YWHAQ, MAPK7, EP300, Sp1 transcription factor, Myocyte-specific enhancer factor 2A, NFATC2 and CABIN1....
E1A binding protein p300 also known as EP300 or p300 is a protein that, in humans, is encoded by the EP300 gene. This protein regulates the activity of many genes in tissues throughout the body...
Interferon regulatory factor 4 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the IRF4 gene, also known as MUM1. In melanocytic cells the IRF4 gene may be regulated by MITF.-Interactions:IRF4 has been shown to interact with STAT6, NFATC2, BCL6 and SPI1....
