Observations
Overexpression of ETS1 leads to an accelerated oncogene-induced senescence, with increased levels of p16 and increased SA-beta-galactosidase activity.

    Aliases
    p54; ETS-1; EWSR2; c-ets-1 
    Common name
    ETS proto-oncogene 1, transcription factor 
    Entrez Id
    2113
    Description
    This gene encodes a member of the ETS family of transcription factors, which are defined by the presence of a conserved ETS DNA-binding domain that recognizes the core consensus DNA sequence GGAA/T in target genes. These proteins function either as transcriptional activators or repressors of numerous genes, and are involved in stem cell development, cell senescence and death, and tumorigenesis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Jul 2011]
