Cyclic AMP-dependent transcription factor ATF-7 (ATF7)

Plays important functions in early cell signaling. Binds the cAMP response element (CRE) (consensus: 5'-GTGACGT[AG][AG]- 3'), a sequence present in many viral and cellular promoters.

Activator of this NF-ELAM1/delta-A site of this E-selectin promoter. Has no intrinsic transcriptional activity, but activates transcription on creation of JUN or FOS heterodimers.
