  • N-term β-catenin (1-567 aa), and SATB1 or empty vector in indicated combinations. β-catenin proteins encoded by both these constructs can translocate into nucleus and are therefore capable of transactivating Wnt/TCF/β-catenin targets; however, the N-term (1-576) protein does not interact with SATB1.

  • Through this mechanism, PKR can modulate transcription, as revealed by its ability to prevent the capacity of RHA to catalyze transactivating response


  • The transactivating module of NFAT5 switches its function from an stimulus-specific activator of transcription in interphase to an stimulus-independent repressor of binding to DNA in mitosis.

  • Because of the presence of two promoters, p63 encodes two major classes of proteins: those containing a transactivating (TA) domain homologous to the one present in p53 (i.e. TAp63), and those that lack the TA domain (i.e. ΔNp63) [1], [2].

  • Yang A, Kaghad M, Wang Y, Gillett E, Fleming MD, et al. (1998) p63, a p53 homolog at 3q27-29, encodes multiple products with transactivating, death-inducing, and dominant-negative activities.

  • Our present study demonstrates that Foxo3a can regulate cardiomyocyte hypertrophy through transactivating catalase.
