|Description: Protein max (Myc-associated factor X).|
Ensembl ID: ENSG00000125952
UniprotKB/SwissProt: MAX_HUMAN (P61244)
Function: Transcription regulator. Forms a sequence-specific DNA- binding protein complex with MYC or MAD which recognizes the core sequence 5'-CAC[GA]TG-3'. The MYC-MAX complex is a transcriptional activator, whereas the MAD-MAX complex is a repressor. May repress transcription via the recruitment of a chromatin remodeling complex containing H3-K9 histone methyltransferase activity.
