GeneCards Summary for FOXK1 Gene
FOXK1 (Forkhead Box K1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FOXK1 include Contagious Pustular Dermatitis and Thyroid Angiosarcoma. Among its related pathways are Metabolism of proteins and Deubiquitination. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and RNA polymerase II transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is FOXK2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FOXK1 Gene
Transcriptional regulator that binds to the upstream enhancer region (CCAC box) of myoglobin gene. Important regulatory factor of the myogenic progenitor cell population. Involved in the cell cycle process, promotes proliferation by repressing Foxo4 transcriptional activity and the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor, p21CIP, in the myogenic progenitor cells. Represses myogenic differentiation by inhibiting MEFC activity. Has a role in remodeling processes of adult muscles that occur in response to physiological stimuli. Required to correct temporal orchestration of molecular and cellular events necessary for muscle repair (By similarity). Positively regulates Wnt/beta-catenin signaling by translocating DVL into the nucleus (PubMed:25805136).
