ATF6 is a constitutively expressed, endoplasmic reticulum (ER) membraneanchored transcription factor. ATF6 is a key transcriptional activator of the unfolded protein response (UPR), which allows mammalian cells to maintain cellular homeostasis when they are subjected to environmental and physiological stresses that target the ER (reviewed in Shen and Prywes, and Groenendyk and Michalak). The C-terminus of ATF6 is located in the ER lumen and its N-terminal DNA binding domain faces the cytosol. AFT6 plays a key role in the ER stress response by transmitting the ER stress signal across the ER membrane into the nucleus. The induction of new gene expression by ATF6 is an important aspect of the ER stress response.
