Summaries for HHEX Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for HHEX Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the homeobox family of transcription factors, many of which are involved in developmental processes. Expression in specific hematopoietic lineages suggests that this protein may play a role in hematopoietic differentiation. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for HHEX Gene

HHEX (Hematopoietically Expressed Homeobox) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HHEX include Gangliosidosis Gm2 and Sandhoff Disease, Infantile, Juvenile, And Adult Forms. Among its related pathways are Regulation of beta-cell development and Transcriptional misregulation in cancer. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is DBX1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HHEX Gene

  • Recognizes the DNA sequence 5-ATTAA-3. Transcriptional repressor. May play a role in hematopoietic differentiation. Establishes anterior identity at two levels; acts early to enhance canonical WNT-signaling by repressing expression of TLE4, and acts later to inhibit NODAL-signaling by directly targeting NODAL (By similarity).
