The protein encoded by this gene is a member of a family of neural specific, zinc finger-containing DNA-binding proteins. The protein binds to the promoter regions of proteolipid proteins of the central nervous system and plays a role in the developing nervous system. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for MYT1 Gene
MYT1 (Myelin Transcription Factor 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MYT1 include periventricular leukomalacia and leukomalacia. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Regulation of lipid metabolism by Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARalpha). GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is ST18.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MYT1 Gene
Binds to the promoter region of genes encoding proteolipid proteins of the central nervous system. May play a role in the development of neurons and oligodendroglia in the CNS. May regulate a critical transition point in oligodendrocyte lineage development by modulating oligodendrocyte progenitor proliferation relative to terminal differentiation and up-regulation of myelin gene transcription.
