GeneCards Summary for KLF4 Gene: 
KLF4 (Kruppel-like factor 4 (gut)) is a protein-coding gene. Diseases associated with KLF4 include skin squamous cell carcinoma, and familial adenomatous polyposis. GO annotations related to this gene include double-stranded DNA binding and sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is KLF1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: KLF4_HUMAN, O43474
Function: Transcription factor; can act both as activator and as repressor. Binds the 5'-CACCC-3' core sequence.
Binds to the promoter region of its own gene and can activate its own transcription. Regulates the expression of
key transcription factors during embryonic development. Plays an important role in maintaining embryonic stem
cells, and in preventing their differentiation. Required for establishing the barrier function of the skin and
for postnatal maturation and maintenance of the ocular surface. Involved in the differentiation of epithelial
cells and may also function in skeletal and kidney development. Contributes to the down-regulation of p53/TP53
transcription

About This Section

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: KLF4_HUMAN, O43474 (See protein sequence)
Recommended Name: Krueppel-like factor 4  
Size: 513 amino acids; 54671 Da
Subunit: Interacts with POU5F1/OCT4 and SOX2 (By similarity). Interacts with MUC1 (via the C-terminal domain).
Interacts with MEIS2 isoform 4 and PBX1 isoform PBX1a
Subcellular location: Nucleus
Biotechnology: POU5F1/OCT4, SOX2, MYC/c-Myc and KLF4 are the four Yamanaka factors. When combined, these factors
are sufficient to reprogram differentiated cells to an embryonic-like state designated iPS (induced pluripotent
stem) cells. iPS cells exhibit the morphology and growth properties of ES cells and express ES cell marker genes
