Ets proteins are transcription factors that activate or repress the expression of genes that are involved in various biological processes, including cellular pro - liferation, differentiation, development, transformation and apoptosis. Like other Ets-family members, Elf3 functions as a sequence-specific DNA-binding transcriptional factor. A mouse Elf3 C - terminal fragment (amino-acid residues 269-371) containing the DNA-binding domain has been crystallized in complex with mouse type II TGF-β receptor promoter (TβR-II) DNA. The crystals belonged to space group P212 121, with unit-cell parameters a = 42.66, b = 52, c = 99.78 Å, and diffracted to a resolution of 2.2 Å.
