Summaries for HOXA4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for HOXA4 Gene

  • In vertebrates, the genes encoding the class of transcription factors called homeobox genes are found in clusters named A, B, C, and D on four separate chromosomes. Expression of these proteins is spatially and temporally regulated during embryonic development. This gene is part of the A cluster on chromosome 7 and encodes a DNA-binding transcription factor which may regulate gene expression, morphogenesis, and differentiation.

GeneCards Summary for HOXA4 Gene

HOXA4 (Homeobox A4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HOXA4 include Hypospadias. Among its related pathways are Activated PKN1 stimulates transcription of AR (androgen receptor) regulated genes KLK2 and KLK3 and Developmental Biology. 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 HOXB4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HOXA4 Gene

  • Sequence-specific transcription factor which is part of a developmental regulatory system that provides cells with specific positional identities on the anterior-posterior axis. Binds to sites in the 5-flanking sequence of its coding region with various affinities. The consensus sequences of the high and low affinity binding sites are 5-TAATGA[CG]-3 and 5-CTAATTTT-3.
