CEBPB is a transcription factor with roles in immune and inflammatory reponses that was identified as a target of NPM-ALK signaling downstream of STAT3 and MAPK1/3. CEBPB expression is downregulated after treatment of cells with anti-NPM-ALK RNAi. CEBPB expression downstream of NPM-ALK signaling promotes cellular survival, as its knockdown increases the proportion of cells undergoing apoptosis. In mouse models of NPM-ALK, CEBPB is required for entry into S phase and contributes to the transforming properties of the fusion protein (Piva et al, 2006; reviewed in Hallberg and Palmer, 2013).
