Summaries for GTF2H5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for GTF2H5 Gene

  • This gene encodes a subunit of transcription/repair factor TFIIH, which functions in gene transcription and DNA repair. This protein stimulates ERCC3/XPB ATPase activity to trigger DNA opening during DNA repair, and is implicated in regulating cellular levels of TFIIH. Mutations in this gene result in trichothiodystrophy, complementation group A. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]

GeneCards Summary for GTF2H5 Gene

GTF2H5 (General Transcription Factor IIH Subunit 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GTF2H5 include trichothiodystrophy 3, photosensitive and trichothiodystrophy 1, photosensitive. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and HIV Life Cycle. GO annotations related to this gene include rDNA binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GTF2H5 Gene

  • Component of the TFIIH basal transcription factor involved in nucleotide excision repair (NER) of DNA and, when complexed to CAK, in RNA transcription by RNA polymerase II. Necessary for the stability of the TFIIH complex and for the presence of normal levels of TFIIH in the cell.

  • Trichothiodystrophy 3, photosensitive (TTD3) [MIM:616395]: A form of trichothiodystrophy, an autosomal recessive disease characterized by sulfur-deficient brittle hair and multisystem variable abnormalities. The spectrum of clinical features varies from mild disease with only hair involvement to severe disease with cutaneous, neurologic and profound developmental defects. Ichthyosis, intellectual and developmental disabilities, decreased fertility, abnormal characteristics at birth, ocular abnormalities, short stature, and infections are common manifestations. There are both photosensitive and non-photosensitive forms of the disorder. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15220921}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
