  Red boxes: untranslated regions; Black boxes: coding regions.
Description 50,762 bases DNA with 15 exons.
Transcription 4,879 bases mRNA.


  R1, R2 and R3 form DNA-binding domain, TA - transactivation domain, CR - conserved region, RD - negative regulatory domain.
Description 752 amino acids, 95 kDa protein.
R1, R2, R3 - three repeats 50 amino acids long, R2 and R3 contain HTH (helix-turn-helix) motives with unconventional turns required for DNA-binding activity, R1 serves as a DNA/protein complex stabilizer;
TA contains acidic amino acids and responsible for transcriptional activation;
CR known as an inhibitor of specific DNA binding activity;
RD is responsible for repression of transactivation function of A-MYB.
Expression Mainly in spermatocytes, neuronal cells and B-lymphoid cells. Also was reported to be expressed in uterine cells and B-cells germinal centres.
Localisation Nucleus.
Function Transcription factor which play a role in the proliferation and differentiation of neurogenic, spermatogenic and B-lymphoid cells. A-MYB knockout mice demonstrated growth abnormalities, and defects in spermatogenesis and female breast development, whereas constantly high expression level of A-MYB in transgenic mice caused hyperplasia in the lymph nodes and spleen.
Homology A-MYB is a member of MYB transcription factors family, which includes C-MYB and B-MYB, with high homology within TA and RD regions. DNA-binding domain is almost identical with that of B-MYB and C-MYB and conserved between mouse, human, drosophila and chicken.

Implicated in

Entity Uterine leiomyoma
Disease Amplification of A-MYB was detected in uterine leiomyoma cells (UtLM) after estrogen stimulation.
Oncogenesis A-MYB overexpression results in promotion of cells proliferation.
Entity B-cell haematological malignancies
Disease High A-MYB mRNA and protein expression was described in Burkitt's Lymphoma and sIg+ B-Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia cell lines and patient samples. A-MYB was also notably expressed in some Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemias (CLL).
Oncogenesis Deregulation of B-cells differentiation that may be caused by A-MYB.
Entity Lymphoma
Disease Expression of A-MYB was demonstrated in the DHL-4 lymphoma cell line with t(14;18)(q32;q21) translocation.
Oncogenesis A-MYB activates BCL2 P2 promoter through a Cdx binding site promoting resistance of these cells to apoptosis.
