AbstractCREBZF is a member of the mammalian AtF/CREB family of transcription factors. Here, we describe a novel functional interaction between CReBZF and the tumor suppressor p53. CReBZF was identifed in a yeast two-hybrid screen using HEY1, recently characterized as an indirect p53 activator, as bait. CREBZF interacts in vitro with both HEY1 and p53, and CREBZF expression stabilizes and activates p53. Moreover, CREBZF cooperates synergistically with HEY1 to enhance p53 transcriptional activity. On the other hand, partial depletion of endogenous CReBZF diminishes p53 protein levels and inhibits HeY1-mediated activation of p53. CREBZF-positive efects on p53 signaling may refect, at least in part, an observed induction of posttranslational modifcations in p53 known to prevent its degradation. CREBZF expression protects HCT116 cells from UV radiation-induced cell death. In addition, CREBZF expression confers sensitivity to 5-fuorouracil, a p53-activating chemotherapeutic drug. Our study suggests that CREBZF may participate in the modulation of p53 tumor suppressor function. © 2012 Landes Bioscience.
