Summaries for TCF21 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TCF21 Gene

  • TCF21 encodes a transcription factor of the basic helix-loop-helix family. The TCF21 product is mesoderm specific, and expressed in embryonic epicardium, mesenchyme-derived tissues of lung, gut, gonad, and both mesenchymal and glomerular epithelial cells in the kidney. Two transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for TCF21 Gene

TCF21 (Transcription Factor 21) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TCF21 include Cardiomyopathy, Dilated, 1J and Deafness, Autosomal Dominant 10. Among its related pathways are PAK Pathway and ERK Signaling. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein dimerization activity and transcriptional repressor activity, RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is MSC.
