Entrez Gene Summary for BNC1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a zinc finger protein present in the basal cell layer of the epidermis and in hair follicles. It is also found in abundance in the germ cells of testis and ovary. This protein is thought to play a regulatory role in keratinocyte proliferation and it may also be a regulator for rRNA transcription. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants, and multiple polyadenylation sites are indicated.[provided by RefSeq, Jul 2014]

GeneCards Summary for BNC1 Gene

BNC1 (Basonuclin 1) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is BNC2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for BNC1 Gene

  • Likely to be a transcription factor specific for squamous epithelium and for the constituent keratinocytes at a stage either prior to or at the very beginning of terminal differentiation. May play a role in the differentiation of spermatozoa and oocytes
