Summaries for TCF25 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TCF25 Gene

  • TCF25 is a member of the basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) family of transcription factors that are important in embryonic development (Steen and Lindholm, 2008 [PubMed 18068114]).[supplied by OMIM, Sep 2008]

GeneCards Summary for TCF25 Gene

TCF25 (Transcription Factor 25) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are CDK-mediated phosphorylation and removal of Cdc6 and Non-Canonical Wnt Pathway. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include DNA binding transcription factor activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TCF25 Gene

  • May play a role in cell death control. Acts as a transcriptional repressor. Has been shown to repress transcription of SRF in vitro and so may play a role in heart development.
