TLE5 is a 197 amino acid nuclear protein that belongs to the TLE family. Expressed predominately in fetal brain, liver, lung, heart and kidney and in adult muscle, TLE5 functions as either a homooligomer or a heterooligomer with other TLE family members and, through this association, dominantly represses the expression of TLE genes. In addition, TLE5 can repress NFkB-regulated gene expression and is thought to play an important role in initiating and maintaining cell differentiation events. Two isoforms of TLE5 exist due to alternative splicing events.
