This gene encodes a member of the heat shock factor (HSF) family of transcriptional activators for heat shock proteins. This gene is a candidate gene for azoospermia, since it localizes to a region of chromosome Y that is sometimes deleted in infertile males. The genome has two identical copies of this gene within a palindromic region; this record represents the more centromeric copy. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for HSFY1 Gene
HSFY1 (Heat Shock Transcription Factor, Y-Linked 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HSFY1 include y chromosome infertility and pelvic varices. 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 HSFX1.
