Summaries for SIX1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SIX1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a homeobox protein that is similar to the Drosophila 'sine oculis' gene product. This gene is found in a cluster of related genes on chromosome 14 and is thought to be involved in limb development. Defects in this gene are a cause of autosomal dominant deafness type 23 (DFNA23) and branchiootic syndrome type 3 (BOS3). [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SIX1 Gene

SIX1 (SIX Homeobox 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SIX1 include brachiootic syndrome 3 and deafness, autosomal dominant 23. Among its related pathways are Transcriptional misregulation in cancer. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and chromatin binding. An important paralog of this gene is SIX2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SIX1 Gene

  • Transcription factor that is involved in the regulation of cell proliferation, apoptosis and embryonic development. Plays an important role in the development of several organs, including kidney, muscle and inner ear. Depending on context, functions as transcriptional repressor or activator. Lacks an activation domain, and requires interaction with EYA family members for transcription activation. Mediates nuclear translocation of EYA1 and EYA2. Binds the 5-TCA[AG][AG]TTNC-3 motif present in the MEF3 element in the MYOG promoter. Regulates the expression of numerous genes, including MYC, CCND1 and EZR. Acts as activator of the IGFBP5 promoter, probably coactivated by EYA2. Repression of precursor cell proliferation in myoblasts is switched to activation through recruitment of EYA3 to the SIX1-DACH1 complex. During myogenesis, seems to act together with EYA2 and DACH2 (By similarity). Regulates the expression of CCNA1.

  • Branchiootic syndrome 3 (BOS3) [MIM:608389]: A syndrome characterized by usually bilateral branchial cleft fistulas or cysts, sensorineural and/or conductive hearing loss, pre-auricular pits, and structural defects of the outer, middle or inner ear. Otic defects include malformed and hypoplastic pinnae, a narrowed external ear canal, bulbous internal auditory canal, stapes fixation, malformed and hypoplastic cochlea. Branchial and otic anomalies overlap with those seen in individuals with the branchiootorenal syndrome. However renal anomalies are absent in branchiootic syndrome patients. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15141091, ECO:0000269 PubMed:17637804, ECO:0000269 PubMed:18330911, ECO:0000269 PubMed:21280147}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Deafness, autosomal dominant, 23 (DFNA23) [MIM:605192]: A form of non-syndromic deafness characterized by prelingual, bilateral, symmetric hearing loss with a conductive component present in some but not all patients. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15141091}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Note=Defects in SIX1 could be a cause of branchiootorenal syndrome (BOR). BOR is an autosomal dominant disorder manifested by various combinations of preauricular pits, branchial fistulae or cysts, lacrimal duct stenosis, hearing loss, structural defects of the outer, middle, or inner ear, and renal dysplasia. Associated defects include asthenic habitus, long narrow facies, constricted palate, deep overbite, and myopia. Hearing loss may be due to mondini type cochlear defect and stapes fixation. Penetrance of BOR syndrome is high, although expressivity can be extremely variable. {ECO:0000305 PubMed:15141091, ECO:0000305 PubMed:19497856}.
