Previous Symbols for POU1F1 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the POU family of transcription factors that regulate mammalian development. The protein regulates expression of several genes involved in pituitary development and hormone expression. Mutations in this genes result in combined pituitary hormone deficiency. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for POU1F1 Gene
POU1F1 (POU Class 1 Homeobox 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with POU1F1 include pituitary hormone deficiency, combined, 1 and pou1f1-related combined pituitary hormone deficiency. Among its related pathways are Glucocorticoid receptor regulatory network. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and chromatin binding. An important paralog of this gene is POU6F1.
