GeneCards Summary for MYF5 Gene
MYF5 (Myogenic Factor 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MYF5 include skeletal muscle cancer and botryoid rhabdomyosarcoma. Among its related pathways are Signaling pathways regulating pluripotency of stem cells and Mesenchymal Stem Cell Differentiation Pathways and Lineage-specific Markers. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding and RNA polymerase II core promoter proximal region sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is MYOD1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MYF5 Gene
Acts as a transcriptional activator that promotes transcription of muscle-specific target genes and plays a role in muscle differentiation. Together with MYOG and MYOD1, co-occupies muscle-specific gene promoter core region during myogenesis. Induces fibroblasts to differentiate into myoblasts. Probable sequence specific DNA-binding protein.
