Myocyte enhancer factor 2A (MEF2A) is a DNA-binding transcription factor that activates many muscle-specific, growth factor-induced, and stress-induced genes. The encoded protein can act as a homodimer or as a heterodimer and is involved in several cellular processes, including muscle development, neuronal differentiation, cell growth control, and apoptosis. Defects in this gene could be a cause of autosomal dominant coronary artery disease 1 with myocardial infarction (ADCAD1) [taken from NCBI Entrez Gene (Gene ID: 4205)].
Alternative names for
MEF2A Antibody include serum response factor-like protein 1 and MEF2 antibody.
