Summaries for FOXM1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FOXM1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a transcriptional activator involved in cell proliferation. The encoded protein is phosphorylated in M phase and regulates the expression of several cell cycle genes, such as cyclin B1 and cyclin D1. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2011]

GeneCards Summary for FOXM1 Gene

FOXM1 (Forkhead Box M1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FOXM1 include central pontine myelinolysis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and Cell Cycle, Mitotic. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and protein kinase binding. An important paralog of this gene is FOXO4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FOXM1 Gene

  • Transcriptional factor regulating the expression of cell cycle genes essential for DNA replication and mitosis. Plays a role in the control of cell proliferation. Plays also a role in DNA breaks repair participating in the DNA damage checkpoint response.

Post-translational modifications for FOXM1 Gene

  • Phosphorylated in M (mitotic) phase. Phosphorylation by the checkpoint kinase CHEK2 in response to DNA damage increases the FOXM1 protein stability probably stimulating the transcription of genes involved in DNA repair. Phosphorylated by CDK1 in late S and G2 phases, creating docking sites for the POLO box domains of PLK1. Subsequently, PLK1 binds and phosphorylates FOXM1, leading to activation of transcriptional activity and subsequent enhanced expression of key mitotic regulators.
