MEF2C transcription factor of the MADS family which binds specifically to the MEF2 element present in the regulatory regions of many muscle-specific genes. May be involved in myogenesis, neurogenesis and in the development of cortical architecture. Three splice-variant isoforms have been described.

Function Transcription activator which binds specifically to the MEF2 element present in the regulatory regions of many muscle-specific genes. Controls cardiac morphogenesis and myogenesis, and is also involved in vascular development. Plays an essential role in hippocampal-dependent learning and memory by suppressing the number of excitatory synapses and thus regulating basal and evoked synaptic transmission. Crucial for normal neuronal development, distribution, and electrical activity in the neocortex. Necessary for proper development of megakaryocytes and platelets and for bone marrow B-lymphopoiesis. Required for B-cell survival and proliferation in response to BCR stimulation, efficient IgG1 antibody responses to T-cell-dependent antigens and for normal induction of germinal center B-cells. May also be involved in neurogenesis and in the development of cortical architecture (By similarity). Isoform 3 and isoform 4, which lack the repressor domain, are more active than isoform 1 and isoform 2.
Involvement in disease Mental retardation, autosomal dominant 20 (MRD20)
Subcellular Location Nucleus, Cytoplasm, sarcoplasm
Protein Families MEF2 family
Tissue Specificity Expressed in brain and skeletal muscle.
