DNA-damage-inducible transcript 3
GADD 153 has been described as a growth arrest and DNA damage-inducible gene that encodes a C/EBP-related nuclear protein. GADD153 expression is induced by a variety of cellular stresses, inducing nutrient deprivation and merabolic perturbations. GADD153 functions to block cells in G1 to S phase in cell cycle progression and acts by dimerizing with other C/EBP proteins to direct GADD153 dimers away from “classical” C/EBP binding sites, recognizing instead unique “nonclassical” sites.
