PCGME1 silencing by small interfering RNA significantly induced early cell apoptosis but this effect was reduced by a miR148a inhibitor. In conclusion, the present study demonstrated a positive regulatory association between MEF2 and PCGEM1, and a reciprocal negative regulatory association between PCGEM1 and miR148a that controls cell apoptosis.
H cordata promotes the activation of HIF-1A-FOXO3 and MEF2A pathways.
in leiomyosarcomas (LMS), this two-faced trait of MEF2 is relevant for tumor aggressiveness. Class IIa HDACs are overexpressed in 22% of LMS, where high levels of MEF2, HDAC4 and HDAC9 inversely correlate with overall survival. The knock out of HDAC9 suppresses the transformed phenotype of LMS cells, by restoring the transcriptional proficiency of some MEF2-target loci

six or seven amino acid deletions and synonymous mutations (147143G-->A)in exon 11 of the MEF2A gene may be correlated with susceptibility to coronary artery disease in the Chinese population
MEF2A is targeted to lysosomes for chaperone-mediated autophagy degradation; oxidative stress-induced lysosome destabilization leads to the disruption of MEF2A degradation as well as the dysregulation of its function
MEF2 transcription factors promotes epithelial-mesenchymal transition and invasiveness of hepatocellular carcinoma through TGF-beta1 autoregulation circuitry.
MEF2 is the key cis-acting factor that regulates expression of a number of transcriptional targets involved in pulmonary vascular homeostasis, including microRNAs 424 and 503, connexins 37, and 40, and Kruppel Like Factors 2 and 4.
SENP2 plays an important role in determining the dynamics and functional outcome of MEF2A SUMOylation and transcriptional activation.
This study expands our understanding of the regulation of MEF2 in skeletal muscle and identifies the mAKAP scaffold as a facilitator of MEF2 transcription and myogenic differentiation.
Correlation studies depicted two distinct groups of soft tissue sarcomas: one in which MEF2 repression correlates with PTEN downregulation and a second group in which MEF2 repression correlates with HDAC4 levels.
Mutations in MEF2A exon12 are implicated in pathogenesis of premature coronary artery disease in the Chinese population.
Substitution of any of the TFBS from our particular search of MEF2, CREB and SRF significantly decreased the number of identified clusters.
Canonical pathway analysis of genes preferentially dysregulated in the atria and ventricles revealed distinct MEF2A-dependent cellular processes in each cardiac chamber. In the atria, MEF2A regulated genes involved in fibrosis and adhesion, whereas in the ventricles, it controlled inflammation and endocytosis.
Both synapse silencing and elimination required de novo transcription, but only silencing required the activity-dependent transcription factors MEF2A/D.
Deficiency of AKT2 in myocardium results in diminished MEF2A abundance, which induced decreased size of cardiomyocytes. We additionally confirmed that EndoG, which is also regulated by AKT2, is a suppressor of MEF2A in myocardium.
these data indicate that MEF2 and AP-1 confer antagonistic regulation of Hspb7 gene expression in skeletal muscle, with implications for autophagy and muscle atrophy.
Nuclear HDAC4 binds to chromatin as well as to MEF2A transcription factor, leading to histone deacetylation and altered neuronal gene expression. By using a Cdkl5 knockout (Cdkl5 -/Y) mouse model, we found that hypophosphorylated HDAC4 translocates to the nucleus of neural precursor cells, thereby reducing histone 3 acetylation.
Knockdown of MEF2A significantly reduced hyperglycemia-induced cardiac fibroblast proliferation and migration, myofibroblast differentiation, matrix metalloproteinase activities, and collagen production.
Lentivirus-mediated MEF 2A shRNA accelerates inflammation and atherosclerosis in APOE knockout mice, but has no effect on lipoprotein levels in plasma.

Our results indicated that exercise-induced CPT1b expression was at least in part mediated by HDAC5/MEF2A interaction.
Whereas MEF2A is absolutely required for proper myoblast differentiation, MEF2B, -C, and -D were found to be dispensable for this process.

The protein encoded by this gene is a DNA-binding transcription factor that activates many muscle-specific, growth factor-induced, and stress-induced genes. The encoded protein can act as a homodimer or as a heterodimer and is involved in several cellular processes, including muscle development, neuronal differentiation, cell growth control, and apoptosis. Defects in this gene could be a cause of autosomal dominant coronary artery disease 1 with myocardial infarction (ADCAD1). Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
