|Description: Myocyte-specific enhancer factor 2C.|
Ensembl ID: ENSG00000081189
UniprotKB/SwissProt: MEF2C_HUMAN (Q06413)
Function: Transcription activator which binds specifically to the MEF2 element present in the regulatory regions of many muscle- specific genes. Controls cardiac morphogenesis and myogenesis, and is also involved in vascular development. May also be involved in neurogenesis and in the development of cortical architecture (By similarity). Isoform 3 and isoform 4, which lack the repressor domain, are more active than isoform 1 and isoform 2.
