Protein Information
Name MEF2A
Synonyms MEF2
Function Transcriptional activator which binds specifically to the MEF2 element, 5'-YTA[AT](4)TAR-3', found in numerous muscle- specific genes. Also involved in the activation of numerous growth factor- and stress-induced genes. Mediates cellular functions not only in skeletal and cardiac muscle development, but also in neuronal differentiation and survival. Plays diverse roles in the control of cell growth, survival and apoptosis via p38 MAPK signaling in muscle-specific and/or growth factor-related transcription. In cerebellar granule neurons, phosphorylated and sumoylated MEF2A represses transcription of NUR77 promoting synaptic differentiation. Associates with chromatin to the ZNF16 promoter.
Cellular Location Nucleus {ECO:0000255|PROSITE- ProRule:PRU00251, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12691662, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16563226}
Tissue Location Isoform MEF2 and isoform MEFA are expressed only in skeletal and cardiac muscle and in the brain. Isoform RSRFC4 and isoform RSRFC9 are expressed in all tissues examined

MEF2A (myocyte specific enhancer factor 2) is a transcription factor protein that belongs to MEF2 family, a family of DNA binding regulatory proteins. MEF2 family members (MEF2A, 2B, 2C, and 2D) are highly expressed during dendritic maturation and synapse formation in the brain and are involved in the regulation of development and function of T-cell, muscle cells, and brain cells (1). Highly expressed during synaptogenesis, MEF2A binds to MEF2 element present in the regulatory regions in various muscle specific genes and activates transcription. MEF2A has been implicated in cardiac and skeletal muscle development (2).
