T-cell factor/lymphoid enhancer factor (TCF/LEF) proteins regulate transcription by recruiting β-catenin and its associated co-regulators. Whether TCF/LEFs also recruit more factors through independent, direct interactions is not well understood. Here we discover Ring Finger Protein 14 (RNF14) as a new binding partner for all TCF/LEF transcription factors. We show that ...
