The activation of expression of CEBPA by EBF1 is inferred from mouse where Ebf1 directly binds one site in the Cebpa promoter and activates transcription of the Cebpa gene.

The CEBPA gene is transcribed to yield mRNA and the mRNA is translated to yield protein.

The PPARG:RXRA heterodimer bound to fatty acids activates transcription of the CEBPA gene. In mouse the Pparg:Rxra heterodimer binds the promoter of the Cebpa gene (Lefterova et al. 2008).

As inferred from mouse, TNF-alpha inhibits expression of CEBPA in pre-adipocytes.

As inferred from mouse, TGF-beta inhibits expression of CEPBA in preadipocytes.

As inferred from mouse 3T3-L1 cells, Wnt-1 and Wnt-10b inhibit expression of CEBPA through stabillization of beta-Catenin. Wnt-10b is probably the actual regulator in vivo.
