Summaries for MAZ Gene

GeneCards Summary for MAZ Gene

MAZ (MYC-Associated Zinc Finger Protein (Purine-Binding Transcription Factor)) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are SIDS Susceptibility Pathways. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and chromatin binding. An important paralog of this gene is PATZ1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MAZ Gene

  • May function as a transcription factor with dual roles in transcription initiation and termination. Binds to two sites, ME1a1 and ME1a2, within the MYC promoter having greater affinity for the former. Also binds to multiple G/C-rich sites within the promoter of the Sp1 family of transcription factors. Regulates inflammation-induced expression of serum amyloid A proteins.
