Summaries for POU4F1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for POU4F1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the POU-IV class of neural transcription factors. This protein is expressed in a subset of retinal ganglion cells and may be involved in the developing sensory nervous system. This protein may also promote the growth of cervical tumors. A translocation of this gene is associated with some adult acute myeloid leukemias. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2012]

GeneCards Summary for POU4F1 Gene

POU4F1 (POU Class 4 Homeobox 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Integrin Pathway and Direct p53 effectors. GO annotations related to this gene include RNA polymerase II distal enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and RNA polymerase II distal enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is POU6F1.
