Previous GeneCards Identifiers for HES5 Gene
This gene encodes a member of a family of basic helix-loop-helix transcriptional repressors. The protein product of this gene, which is activated downstream of the Notch pathway, regulates cell differentiation in multiple tissues. Disruptions in the normal expression of this gene have been associated with developmental diseases and cancer. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2008]
GeneCards Summary for HES5 Gene
HES5 (Hes Family BHLH Transcription Factor 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HES5 include fetal valproate syndrome. Among its related pathways are Notch signaling pathway (KEGG) and Signaling by NOTCH1. GO annotations related to this gene include chromatin binding and protein dimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is HES4.
