E2F2 is a member of the E2Ffamily of transcription factors. The E2F family plays a crucialrole in the control of cell cycle and action of tumor suppressorproteins and is also a target of the transforming proteins of smallDNA tumor viruses. The E2F proteins contain several evolutionallyconserved domains found in most members of the family. Thesedomains include a DNA binding domain, a dimerization domain whichdetermines interaction with the differentiation regulatedtranscription factor proteins (DP), a transactivation domainenriched in acidic amino acids, and a tumor suppressor proteinassociation domain which is embedded within the transactivationdomain. This protein and another 2 members, E2F1 and E2F3, have anadditional cyclin binding domain. This protein binds specificallyto retinoblastoma protein pRB in a cell-cycle dependent manner, andit exhibits overall 46% amino acid identity to E2F1.
