Previous GeneCards Identifiers for HSF1 Gene
The product of this gene is a transcription factor that is rapidly induced after temperature stress and binds heat shock promoter elements (HSE). This protein plays a role in the regulation of lifespan. Expression of this gene is repressed by phsphorylation, which promotes binding by heat shock protein 90. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2016]
GeneCards Summary for HSF1 Gene
HSF1 (Heat Shock Transcription Factor 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HSF1 include Synucleinopathy and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 1. Among its related pathways are Cellular Senescence and Legionellosis. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and chromatin binding. An important paralog of this gene is HSF4.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HSF1 Gene
DNA-binding protein that specifically binds heat shock promoter elements (HSE) and activates transcription. In higher eukaryotes, HSF is unable to bind to the HSE unless the cells are heat shocked.
