ERF-2, the human homologue of the murine Tis11d early response gene

Gene. 1995 Jan 23;152(2):285-6. doi: 10.1016/0378-1119(94)00696-p.


A human cDNA specifying a member of the Tis11 early response gene family was cloned and sequenced. The human gene differs from its mouse homologue by encoding an additional 97 amino acids at its C-terminal end. The sequence has transactivation-like motifs, an unusual Cys-Ser-Ala-rich motif and displays sequence similarity at the extreme C-terminal end with another Tis11 family member, ERF-1.
