Zif268 is a mammalian transcription factor that is now officially known as Egr1 (Early Growth Response Protein 1). It was also named Krox-24, NGFI-A, TIS8, and ZENK. It was originally discovered in mice.
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the EGR family of C2H2-type zinc-finger proteins. It is a nuclear protein and functions as a transcriptional regulator. The products of target genes it activates are required for differentiation and mitogenesis. Studies suggest this is a tumor suppressor gene.
