Previous GeneCards Identifiers for NCOR1 Gene
This gene encodes a protein that mediates ligand-independent transcription repression of thyroid-hormone and retinoic-acid receptors by promoting chromatin condensation and preventing access of the transcription machinery. It is part of a complex which also includes histone deacetylases and transcriptional regulators similar to the yeast protein Sin3p. This gene is located between the Charcot-Marie-Tooth and Smith-Magenis syndrome critical regions on chromosome 17. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. Pseudogenes of this gene are found on chromosomes 17 and 20.[provided by RefSeq, Jun 2010]
GeneCards Summary for NCOR1 Gene
NCOR1 (Nuclear Receptor Corepressor 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NCOR1 include Leukemia, Acute Promyelocytic, Somatic and Leukemia, Acute Myeloid. Among its related pathways are Development Ligand-independent activation of ESR1 and ESR2 and RNA Polymerase II Transcription Initiation And Promoter Clearance. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and chromatin binding. An important paralog of this gene is RCOR2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NCOR1 Gene
Mediates transcriptional repression by certain nuclear receptors. Part of a complex which promotes histone deacetylation and the formation of repressive chromatin structures which may impede the access of basal transcription factors. Participates in the transcriptional repressor activity produced by BCL6.
