Summaries for SPEN Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SPEN Gene

  • This gene encodes a hormone inducible transcriptional repressor. Repression of transcription by this gene product can occur through interactions with other repressors, by the recruitment of proteins involved in histone deacetylation, or through sequestration of transcriptional activators. The product of this gene contains a carboxy-terminal domain that permits binding to other corepressor proteins. This domain also permits interaction with members of the NuRD complex, a nucleosome remodeling protein complex that contains deacetylase activity. In addition, this repressor contains several RNA recognition motifs that confer binding to a steroid receptor RNA coactivator; this binding can modulate the activity of both liganded and nonliganded steroid receptors.

GeneCards Summary for SPEN Gene

SPEN (Spen Family Transcriptional Repressor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SPEN include pancreatic cystadenoma and microcystic adenoma. Among its related pathways are Notch-mediated HES/HEY network and Notch signaling pathway (Pathway Interaction Database). GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and nucleotide binding. An important paralog of this gene is RBM15.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SPEN Gene

  • May serve as a nuclear matrix platform that organizes and integrates transcriptional responses. In osteoblasts, supports transcription activation: synergizes with RUNX2 to enhance FGFR2-mediated activation of the osteocalcin FGF-responsive element (OCFRE) (By similarity). Has also been shown to be an essential corepressor protein, which probably regulates different key pathways such as the Notch pathway. Negative regulator of the Notch pathway via its interaction with RBPSUH, which prevents the association between NOTCH1 and RBPSUH, and therefore suppresses the transactivation activity of Notch signaling. Blocks the differentiation of precursor B-cells into marginal zone B-cells. Probably represses transcription via the recruitment of large complexes containing histone deacetylase proteins. May bind both to DNA and RNA.
