NAB1 and 2 (NGFI-A binding protein) are transcriptional co-factors that interact with EGR1, 2 and 3 and repress or activate transcription of EGR target genes in a context dependent fashion (Swirnoff et al, 1998; Svaren et al, 1996; Svaren et al, 1998; Russo et al, 1995; Sevetson et al, 2000; Abdulkadir et al, 2001; Le et al, 2005). NAB proteins may contribute to transcriptional repression through the recruitment of CHD4 (Srinivasan et al, 2006).
NAB2 is a delayed immediate early gene that is expressed in response to many of the same stimuli as EGR (Qu et al, 1998). Expression of NAB2 is regulated in part by the binding of EGR proteins to the cognate site in the NAB2 promoter (Kumbrink et al, 2005; Kumbrink et al, 2010). NAB2 expression is in frequently lost in prostate carcinomas and EGR1 is frequently overexpressed (Abdulkadir et al, 2001; Eid et al, 1998; Thigpen et al, 1996).
