Previous GeneCards Identifiers for GATA3 Gene
This gene encodes a protein which belongs to the GATA family of transcription factors. The protein contains two GATA-type zinc fingers and is an important regulator of T-cell development and plays an important role in endothelial cell biology. Defects in this gene are the cause of hypoparathyroidism with sensorineural deafness and renal dysplasia. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2009]
GeneCards Summary for GATA3 Gene
GATA3 (GATA Binding Protein 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GATA3 include hypoparathyroidism, sensorineural deafness, and renal dysplasia and hypoparathyroidism. Among its related pathways are Platelet activation, signaling and aggregation and Factors involved in megakaryocyte development and platelet production. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and transcription factor binding. An important paralog of this gene is GATA5.
