Definition Homo sapiens transcription factor AP-2 alpha (activating enhancer binding protein 2 alpha) (TFAP2A), transcript variant 1, mRNA.
Product transcription factor AP-2-alpha isoform a

Summary: The protein encoded by this gene is a transcription factor that binds the consensus sequence 5'-GCCNNNGGC-3'. The encoded protein functions as either a homodimer or as a heterodimer with similar family members. This protein activates the transcription of some genes while inhibiting the transcription of others. Defects in this gene are a cause of branchiooculofacial syndrome (BOFS). Three transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Dec 2009].

Transcript Variant: This variant (1) encodes the longest isoform (a).

CCDS Note: A downstream start codon is used for this CCDS representation based on sequencing of the purified protein in PMID:3063603, which shows that the second in-frame start codon is used. An upstream start codon exists and would result in a protein that is 2 aa longer at the N-terminus, but there is currently no evidence for this longer protein.
