CCAAT/Enhancer-Binding Protein Beta
Living reference work entry
The nuclear factor for IL-6 expression (NF-IL6) was discovered as a member of the CCAAT-enhancer binding proteins (C/EBP) in 1990, from which it derived its current name: C/EBP-β (Akira et al. 1990). C/EBP-β was first found to bind to an interleukin 1 (IL1) responsive element necessary for IL-6 expression (Akira et al. 1990). In general, C/EBP-β is thought to be an important transcription factor involved in immune responses, hematopoiesis, endoplasmic reticulum stress (ER-stress), adipogenesis, central nervous system (CNS) diseases, gluconeogenesis, liver regeneration, and embryogenesis. The C/EBP protein family consists of six members: C/EBP-α, -β, -δ, -ε, -γ, and -ζ (Gene names CEBPA, CEBPB, CEBPG, CEBPD, CEBPE, and CEBPZ, respectively). Each member belongs to the basic-leucine...
