Gene: ELK1 (ETS transcription factor ELK1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ELK1
Name: ETS transcription factor ELK1
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and RNA polymerase II transcription factor binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the nucleoplasm. Biomarker of Alzheimer's disease; Huntington's disease; Lewy body dementia; and schizophrenia.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: ELK1, ETS transcription factor; ELK1, member of ETS oncogene family; ETS domain-containing protein Elk-1; ETS-like gene 1; tyrosine kinase (ELK1) oncogene
