Summaries for SNAI3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SNAI3 Gene

  • SNAI3 is a member of the SNAIL gene family, named for the Drosophila snail gene, which plays roles in mesodermal formation during embryogenesis (Katoh and Katoh, 2003 [PubMed 12579345]).[supplied by OMIM, Apr 2009]

GeneCards Summary for SNAI3 Gene

SNAI3 (Snail Family Zinc Finger 3) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and copper ion binding. An important paralog of this gene is SCRT2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SNAI3 Gene

  • Seems to inhibit myoblast differentiation. Transcriptional repressor of E-box-dependent transactivation of downstream myogenic bHLHs genes. Binds preferentially to the canonical E-box sequences 5-CAGGTG-3 and 5-CACCTG-3 (By similarity).
