  • Description: E2F7 is a transcription factor that participates in various processes such as cell cycle regulation and DNA damage response by mediating transcriptional repression of target genes involved in G1/S regulation as well as in DNA replication and repair. E2F7 behaves as a tumour suppressor by inhibiting DNA repair activity of tumour cells upon chemotherapy treatment. Loss of E2F7 by CRISPR knockout confers increased resistance to chemotherapy in BRCA2-deficient cells.
