CREB regulated transcription coactivator 1; CREB-regulated transcription coactivator 1; MECT1; TORC-1; TORC1; WAMTP1; mucoepidermoid carcinoma translocated 1; mucoepidermoid carcinoma translocated protein 1; transducer of CREB protein 1; transducer of regulated cAMP response element-binding protein (CREB) 1; transducer of regulated cAMP response element-binding protein 1
Transcriptional coactivator for CREB1 which activates transcription through both consensus and variant cAMP response element (CRE) sites. Acts as a coactivator, in the SIK/TORC signaling pathway, being active when dephosphorylated and acts independently of CREB1 'Ser-133' phosphorylation. Enhances the interaction of CREB1 with TAF4. Regulates the expression of specific CREB-activated genes such as the steroidogenic gene, StAR. Potent coactivator of PGC1alpha and inducer of mitochondrial biogenesis in muscle cells. Also coactivator for TAX activation of the human T-cell leukemia virus type 1 (HTLV-1) long terminal repeats (LTR). In the hippocampus, involved in late-phase long- term potentiation (L-LTP) maintenance at the Schaffer collateral- CA1 synapses. May be required for dendritic growth of developing cortical neurons (By similarity).
