GeneCards Summary for KLF15 Gene
KLF15 (Kruppel Like Factor 15) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KLF15 include Aortic Aneurysm and Muscle Hypertrophy. Among its related pathways are Adipogenesis and BMAL1-CLOCK,NPAS2 activates circadian gene expression. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and transcriptional activator activity, RNA polymerase II core promoter proximal region sequence-specific binding. An important paralog of this gene is KLF4.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KLF15 Gene
Transcriptional regulator that binds to the GA element of the CLCNKA promoter. Binds to the KCNIP2 promoter and regulates KCNIP2 circadian expression in the heart (By similarity). Is a repressor of CTGF expression, involved in the control of cardiac fibrosis. It is also involved in the control of cardiac hypertrophy acting through the inhibition of MEF2A and GATA4 (By similarity). Involved in podocyte differentiation (By similarity). Inhibits MYOCD activity. Is a negative regulator of TP53 acetylation. Inhibits NF-kappa-B activation through repression of EP300-dependent RELA acetylation.
