Entrez Gene Summary for SOX17 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the SOX (SRY-related HMG-box) family of transcription factors involved in the regulation of embryonic development and in the determination of the cell fate. The encoded protein may act as a transcriptional regulator after forming a protein complex with other proteins. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SOX17 Gene

SOX17 (SRY (Sex Determining Region Y)-Box 17) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SOX17 include vesicoureteral reflux 3 and vesicoureteral reflux. Among its related pathways are ERK Signaling and Cardiac Progenitor Differentiation. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding and transcription coactivator activity. An important paralog of this gene is SOX3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SOX17 Gene

  • Acts as transcription regulator that binds target promoter DNA and bends the DNA. Binds to the sequences 5-AACAAT-3 or 5-AACAAAG-3. Modulates transcriptional regulation via WNT3A. Inhibits Wnt signaling. Promotes degradation of activated CTNNB1. Plays a key role in the regulation of embryonic development. Required for normal looping of the embryonic heart tube. Required for normal development of the definitive gut endoderm. Probable transcriptional activator in the premeiotic germ cells (By similarity).

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot

SOX17_HUMAN
  • Vesicoureteral reflux 3 (VUR3) [MIM:613674]: A disease belonging to the group of congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract. It is characterized by the reflux of urine from the bladder into the ureters and sometimes into the kidneys, and is a risk factor for urinary tract infections. Primary disease results from a developmental defect of the ureterovesical junction. In combination with intrarenal reflux, the resulting inflammatory reaction may result in renal injury or scarring, also called reflux nephropathy. Extensive renal scarring impairs renal function and may predispose patients to hypertension, proteinuria, renal insufficiency and end-stage renal disease. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20960469}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
