InnateDB Annotation
Summary
NFAT5 is a transcription factor that is upregulated by hypertonicity. Activated NFAT5 enhances LPS-mediated NFkB activity by complexing with NFkB and kB elements in downstream genes. (Demonstrated in murine model)
NFAT5 expression is strongly induced by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and plays an essential role in stimulating HIV replication in co-infected macrophages.

Entrez Gene
Summary The product of this gene is a member of the nuclear factors of activated T cells family of transcription factors. Proteins belonging to this family play a central role in inducible gene transcription during the immune response. This protein regulates gene expression induced by osmotic stress in mammalian cells. Unlike monomeric members of this protein family, this protein exists as a homodimer and forms stable dimers with DNA elements. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
