Previous Symbols for KLF11 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a zinc finger transcription factor that binds to SP1-like sequences in epsilon- and gamma-globin gene promoters. This binding inhibits cell growth and causes apoptosis. Defects in this gene are a cause of maturity-onset diabetes of the young type 7 (MODY7). Three transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2010]
GeneCards Summary for KLF11 Gene
KLF11 (Kruppel-Like Factor 11) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KLF11 include maturity-onset diabetes of the young, type vii and maturity-onset diabetes of the young. Among its related pathways are EGFR1 Signaling Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and sequence-specific DNA binding RNA polymerase II transcription factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is KLF2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KLF11 Gene
Transcription factor. Activates the epsilon- and gamma-globin gene promoters and, to a much lower degree, the beta-globin gene and represses promoters containing SP1-like binding inhibiting cell growth. Represses transcription of SMAD7 which enhances TGF-beta signaling. Induces apoptosis.
