GeneCards Summary for BHLHA15 Gene

BHLHA15 (Basic Helix-Loop-Helix Family, Member A15) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Regulation of beta-cell development. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is NEUROG1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for BHLHA15 Gene

  • Plays a role in controlling the transcriptional activity of MYOD1, ensuring that expanding myoblast populations remain undifferentiated. Repression may occur through muscle-specific E-box occupancy by homodimers. May also negatively regulate bHLH-mediated transcription through an N-terminal repressor domain. Serves as a key regulator of acinar cell function, stability, and identity. Also required for normal organelle localization in exocrine cells and for mitochondrial calcium ion transport. May function as a unique regulator of gene expression in several different embryonic and postnatal cell lineages. Binds to the E-box consensus sequence 5-CANNTG-3 (By similarity).
