LEF1 binds the CEBPA promoter between 559 bp and 538 bp upstream of the transcription start and directly regulates transcription of CEBPA (Skokowa et al. 2006). LEF1 is most highly expressed in promyelocytes and a reduction of LEF1 expression is associated with neutropenia.
Elevated STAT5A protein binds LEF1, inducing LEF1 degradation and inhibiting LEF1 auto-regulation and activation of LEF1 target genes, MYC, CCND1 (cyclin D1), (BIRC5) Survivin and CEBPA (Gupta et al. 2014 ).
RUNX1 and LEF1 regulate ELANE (ELA2) mRNA expression in myeloid cells by binding to its promoter (Li et al. 2003).
