This gene is a member of the Antp homeobox family and encodes a nuclear protein with a homeobox DNA-binding domain. It is included in a cluster of homeobox B genes located on chromosome 17. The encoded protein functions as a sequence-specific transcription factor that is involved in development. Increased expression of this gene is associated with a distinct biologic subset of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for HOXB3 Gene
HOXB3 (Homeobox B3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HOXB3 include thyroid hemiagenesis and leukemia, acute myeloid. Among its related pathways are Developmental Biology and Activated PKN1 stimulates transcription of AR (androgen receptor) regulated genes KLK2 and KLK3. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and RNA polymerase II core promoter sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is HOXD3.
