Previous Symbols for GATA1 Gene
This gene encodes a protein which belongs to the GATA family of transcription factors. The protein plays an important role in erythroid development by regulating the switch of fetal hemoglobin to adult hemoglobin. Mutations in this gene have been associated with X-linked dyserythropoietic anemia and thrombocytopenia. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for GATA1 Gene
GATA1 (GATA Binding Protein 1 (Globin Transcription Factor 1)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GATA1 include thrombocytopenia with beta-thalassemia, x-linked and gata1-related x-linked cytopenia. Among its related pathways are Hemostasis and G-AlphaQ Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and chromatin binding. An important paralog of this gene is GATA5.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GATA1 Gene
Transcriptional activator or repressor which probably serves as a general switch factor for erythroid development. It binds to DNA sites with the consensus sequence 5-[AT]GATA[AG]-3 within regulatory regions of globin genes and of other genes expressed in erythroid cells.
