Activating transcription factor 5, also known as ATF5, is a protein which in humans is encoded by the ATF5 gene.[1]



First described by Nishizawa and Nagata,[2] ATF5 has been classified as a member of the activating transcription factor (ATF)/cAMP response-element binding protein (CREB) family.[3][4]

ATF5 transcripts and protein are expressed in a wide variety of tissues, particularly high expression of transcripts in liver. It is also present in a variety of tumor cell types.

ATF5 expression is regulated at the transcriptional and translational level.

ATF5 has been shown to interact with DISC1[5] and TRIB3.[6]
