Definition

A protein, product of gene transcription and translation, which enters the nucleus where it binds to a nucleotide sequence in the regulatory regions of responsive genes, and has the effect of either enhancing or repressing the expression of one or more genes downstream of the binding site. Expression of one gene is normally controlled by several transcription factors.
