Early growth response protein 3 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the EGR3 gene.[1][2][3]

The gene encodes a transcriptional regulator that belongs to the EGR family of C2H2-type zinc-finger proteins. It is an immediate-early growth response gene which is induced by mitogenic stimulation. The protein encoded by this gene participates in the transcriptional regulation of genes in controlling biological rhythm. It may also plays a role in muscle development.[3]
