jun proto-oncogene

Gene Summary

Enables chromatin binding activity and transcription cis-regulatory region binding activity. Involved in cellular response to anisomycin and positive regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter involved in cellular response to chemical stimulus. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including animal organ development; negative regulation of protein autophosphorylation; and positive regulation of cell population proliferation. Located in nucleus. Part of transcription repressor complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; long bone; and sensory organ. Used to study pulmonary emphysema. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pulmonary tuberculosis. Orthologous to human JUN (Jun proto-oncogene, AP-1 transcription factor subunit).
