In addition to being an estrogen-responsive target, GREB1 also interacts directly with ESR1 and functions as an coactivator at numerous estrogen-responsive promoters, as assessed in MCF7 cell lines, xenograft models and primary tumors (Mohammed et al, 2013). ESR1-binding coincides with ~95% of GREB1 binding events sites as assessed by ChIP-seq, and expression of up to half of ESR1- and estrogen-dependent genes is compromised when GREB1 expression is silenced, without affecting ESR1 binding. GREB1 may function to stabilize interactions with other coactivators such as EP300 and CREBBP (also known as p300 and CBP, respectively), as co-occupancy with these proteins is lost upon GREB1 silencing (Mohammed et al, 2013). GREB1 expression is high in ER+ cancers and is associated with positive prognosis (Mohammed et al, 2013; reviewed in Hodgkinson and Vanderhyden, 2014).
