Pubmed ID Function Species Evidence Strength Reviewer's Comments Reviewer
[16717057] DNA Binding; Transactivation Human Medium Human Cic weakly repressed luciferase reporter expression relative to reporter vector alone in a cotransfection assay in which an expression vector including Cic fused to the GAL4 DNA-binding domain was transfected into HeLa cells along with a reporter vector including 5 tandem copies of the GAL4 DNA-binding sequence fused to luciferase.

The HMG-box domain of Cic bound to a consensus octameric sequence within the minimal promoter of the human ERM gene (-350 to -311) in an in-vitro EMSA assay in which in-vitro translated GST-Cic (HMG-box domain) was incubated with 32P-labeled probe corresponding to the human ERM minimal promoter and then analyzed by SDS-PAGE. The binding protein was positively identified as Cic through the further addition of anti-GST antibody in a Supershift assay.

Additional Reviewer Comments:
Reviewer: Stuart Lithwick

Human Cic is likely a transcription factor, which represses gene expression through interactions with DNA binding elements. Cic-GAL4DBD represses luciferase expression when transfected into HeLa cells with a luciferase reporter vector. Also, the HMG-box domain of Cic binds to an 8 bp sequence within the human ERM minimal promoter as detected by EMSA and Supershift assays.
