InnateDB Annotation
Summary
Atf3 has been identified as a high-density lipoprotein ??inducible negative regulator of macrophage activation.
Atf3 plays an important role in modulating IFN responses in macrophages by controlling basal and inducible levels of Ifnb1, as well as the expression of genes downstream of IFN signalling.
InnateDB Annotation from Orthologs
Summary
[Homo sapiens] ATF3 is induced by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and regulates TLR-stimulated inflammatory responses as part of a negative-feedback loop.
Entrez Gene
Summary This gene does not have any Entrez summary - the following is the summary from its human ortholog ENSG00000162772:
This gene encodes a member of the mammalian activation transcription factor/cAMP responsive element-binding (CREB) protein family of transcription factors. This gene is induced by a variety of signals, including many of those encountered by cancer cells, and is involved in the complex process of cellular stress response. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. It is possible that alternative splicing of this gene may be physiologically important in the regulation of target genes. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2011]
