TF Info Page for MYSM1 (Myb/SANT)


Assessment Binding Mode Motif Status Notes Comments
Likely to be sequence specific TF 3 Low specificity DNA-binding protein No motif MYSM1 has been shown to bind DNA. This interaction requires the MYSM1 Myb but not the SWIRM domain (PMID: 17428495). Domain sequence alignment places it near DNA-binding Myb domains but scores slightly higher as a SANT rather than Myb domain based on Prosite patterns. Given that most Myb proteins that bind DNA sequence specifically have multiple Myb domains in an array, this protein could bind DNA sequence non-specifically with its single Myb domain.

Source Annotation
TF-CAT classification No
Vaquerizas 2009 TF classification
"a" Has direct evidence of TF function;
"b" Has evidence for an orthologous TF;
"c" contains likely DBDs, but has no functional evidence;
"x" is an unlikely TF such as predicted gene, genes with likely non-specific DBDs or that have function outside transcription;
"other" category contains proteins without clear DBDs they curated from external sources.
CisBP considers it as a TF? Yes
TFclass considers it as a TF? No
Has GO:0003700 "transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding" No
Initial Assessment
1a1 Protein has a high confidence PWM (HT-SELEX, PBM or B1H model) or there is a crystal structure that supports sequence specific DNA binding;
1a2 There is high confidence data for a close ortholog (as defined in CisBP);
2a1 There is lower confidence direct evidence, such as a Jaspar, Hocomoco or Transfac model;
2a2 There is lower confidence evidence for an close ortholog;
3a There is decent circumstantial evidence for its role as a TF or not;
4a Two or more datasets predict it as a TF;
5a One of the source datasets predicts is as a TF
4a, two or more datasets predict it as a TF
TF has conditional DNA-binding requirements
