CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein delta is a protein that in humans is encoded by the CEBPD gene.[1][2]

The protein encoded by this intronless gene is a bZIP transcription factor which can bind as a homodimer to certain DNA regulatory regions. It can also form heterodimers with the related protein CEBP-alpha. The encoded protein is important in the regulation of genes involved in immune and inflammatory responses, and may be involved in the regulation of genes associated with activation and/or differentiation of macrophages.[3]



CEBPD has been shown to interact with Mothers against decapentaplegic homolog 3.[4]
