Summaries for IRF6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for IRF6 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the interferon regulatory transcription factor (IRF) family. Family members share a highly-conserved N-terminal helix-turn-helix DNA-binding domain and a less conserved C-terminal protein-binding domain. The encoded protein may be a transcriptional activator. Mutations in this gene can cause van der Woude syndrome and popliteal pterygium syndrome. Mutations in this gene are also associated with non-syndromic orofacial cleft type 6. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.[provided by RefSeq, May 2011]

GeneCards Summary for IRF6 Gene

IRF6 (Interferon Regulatory Factor 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with IRF6 include Popliteal Pterygium Syndrome and Van Der Woude Syndrome 1. Among its related pathways are Cytokine Signaling in Immune system and Primary Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis FSGS. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include DNA binding transcription factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is IRF5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for IRF6 Gene

  • Probable DNA-binding transcriptional activator. Key determinant of the keratinocyte proliferation-differentiation switch involved in appropriate epidermal development (By similarity). Plays a role in regulating mammary epithelial cell proliferation (By similarity). May regulate WDR65 transcription (By similarity).

  • Non-syndromic orofacial cleft 6 (OFC6) [MIM:608864]: A birth defect consisting of cleft lips with or without cleft palate. Cleft lips are associated with cleft palate in two-third of cases. A cleft lip can occur on one or both sides and range in severity from a simple notch in the upper lip to a complete opening in the lip extending into the floor of the nostril and involving the upper gum. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15317890, ECO:0000269 PubMed:21082654}. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Popliteal pterygium syndrome (PPS) [MIM:119500]: An autosomal dominant disorder characterized by oro-facial, skin and genital anomalies. Expressivity is variable. Clinical features include cleft lip/palate, lower lip cysts, syngnathia, congenital ankyloblepharon filiforme in some cases, bifid scrotum, hypoplastic scrotum, hypoplastic uterus, talipes equinovarus. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:12219090, ECO:0000269 PubMed:14640121, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19036739, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20803643}.
