OBO ID: GO:0016602
Term Name: CCAAT-binding factor complex Search Ontology:
  • NF-Y transcription factor complex
  • nuclear transcription factor Y complex
Definition: A heteromeric transcription factor complex that binds to the CCAAT-box upstream of promoters; functions as both an activator and a repressor, depending on its interacting cofactors. Typically trimeric consisting of NFYA, NFYB and NFYC subunits. In Saccharomyces, it activates the transcription of genes in response to growth in a nonfermentable carbon source and consists of four known subunits: HAP2, HAP3, HAP4 and HAP5.7828851
