1.

CREB (cAMP response element binding) is a protein that is a transcription factor. It binds to certain DNA sequences called cAMP response elements (CRE) and thereby increases or decreases the transcription, and thus the expression, of certain genes. CREB was first described in 1987 as a cAMP-responsive transcription factor regulating the somatostatin gene
