Summaries for EGR4 Gene

GeneCards Summary for EGR4 Gene

EGR4 (Early Growth Response 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with EGR4 include cryptorchidism. Among its related pathways are Calcineurin-regulated NFAT-dependent transcription in lymphocytes and Downstream signaling in naive CD8+ T cells. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is EGR1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for EGR4 Gene

  • Transcriptional regulator. Recognizes and binds to the DNA sequence 5-GCGGGGGCG-3 (GSG). Activates the transcription of target genes whose products are required for mitogenesis and differentiation (By similarity).
