Pubmed ID Function Species Evidence Strength Reviewer's Comments Reviewer
[1317551] Transactivation Mouse Medium Myf-6 can transactivate various muscle-specific promoters in gene reporter assays in NIH3T3 cells. Elodie Portales-Casamar
[2311584] DNA Binding Human Weak Myf-6 only very weakly interacts with a MEF or MLC enhancer oligonucleotides which are bound by Myf-3, Myf-4 and Myf-5 (EMSA). The residual affinity is not completely unspecific since AP1 and SBE binding sites do not form complexes. Elodie Portales-Casamar
[11076940] DNA Binding; Transactivation Human Strong myf6 binds to an element in the ACCbeta Promoter (yeast one-hybrid and EMSA experiments).

myf6 transactivates a gene reporter construct carrying 6 copies of this element in NIH3T3 cells.

Additional Reviewer Comments:
Reviewer: Elodie Portales-Casamar

myf6 is a muscle specific TF, binding to specific sequences to transactivate the expression of muscle-specific genes.
