Domain

Calcium-responsive transcription factor (IPR029309)

Short name: CaRF

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This domain is found in calcium-responsive transcription factor (CaRF, also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 2 chromosomal region candidate gene 8 protein) [PMID: 11832226]. CaRF acts as a transcriptional activator that mediates the calcium- and neuron-selective induction of BDNF exon III transcription. It binds to the consensus calcium-response element CaRE1 5'-CTATTTCGAG-3' sequence [PMID: 11832226].
