Abstract:
VEZF1 is a DNA-binding transcription factor that is highly conserved in vertebrates. Human VEZF1 has recently been found to interact with transcriptionally active gene promoters and erythroid specific enhancers. It is unclear how the broadly expressed VEZF1 interacts with enhancers in a cell type-specific manner or what functions it plays at these elements. This work begins to address the cell-type specific roles of VEZF1 by creating loss of function models in a human erythroid cell line.
