JunB is part of the activator protein-1 (AP-1) family of transcription factors that is involved in regulating gene activity following primary growth factor response. It binds to the AP-1 consensus-binding site sequence 5'-TGA[CG]TCA-3' (1, 2). Proteins of the AP-1 family contain a leucine zipper domain that allows homo- and heterodimer formation (1). Moreover, JunB is a growth-inhibiting protein that antagonizes the proliferative effects of c-Jun. It suppresses cell proliferation by direct transcriptional activation of the cell cycle suppressor p16INK4A and by negatively regulating cyclin D1. On the other hand, JunB has also a cell cycle-promoting role through activating the transcription of the cell cycle regulator cyclin A. However, AP-1 proteins not only act as oncogenes or tumor suppressors, but they are also involved in a broader spectrum of cellular events, such as apoptosis, differentiation, and inflammation (3).
