Summaries for ALX1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ALX1 Gene

  • The specific function of this gene has yet to be determined in humans; however, in rodents, it is necessary for survival of the forebrain mesenchyme and may also be involved in development of the cervix. Mutations in the mouse gene lead to neural tube defects such as acrania and meroanencephaly. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for ALX1 Gene

ALX1 (ALX Homeobox 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ALX1 include frontonasal dysplasia 3 and frontonasal dysplasia-severe microphthalmia-severe facial clefting syndrome. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and protein heterodimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is PRRX2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ALX1 Gene

  • Sequence-specific DNA-binding transcription factor that binds palindromic sequences within promoters and may activate or repress the transcription of a subset of genes (PubMed:9753625, PubMed:8756334). Most probably regulates the expression of genes involved in the development of mesenchyme-derived craniofacial structures. Early on in development, it plays a role in forebrain mesenchyme survival (PubMed:20451171). May also induce epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) through the expression of SNAI1 (PubMed:23288509).

  • Frontonasal dysplasia 3 (FND3) [MIM:613456]: The term frontonasal dysplasia describes an array of abnormalities affecting the eyes, forehead and nose and linked to midfacial dysraphia. The clinical picture is highly variable. Major findings include true ocular hypertelorism; broadening of the nasal root; median facial cleft affecting the nose and/or upper lip and palate; unilateral or bilateral clefting of the alae nasi; lack of formation of the nasal tip; anterior cranium bifidum occultum; a V-shaped or widows peak frontal hairline. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20451171}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
