Summaries for TCF7 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TCF7 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the T-cell factor/lymphoid enhancer-binding factor family of high mobility group (HMG) box transcriptional activators. This gene is expressed predominantly in T-cells and plays a critical role in natural killer cell and innate lymphoid cell development. The encoded protein forms a complex with beta-catenin and activates transcription through a Wnt/beta-catenin signaling pathway. Mice with a knockout of this gene are viable and fertile, but display a block in T-lymphocyte differentiation. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. Naturally-occurring isoforms lacking the N-terminal beta-catenin interaction domain may act as dominant negative regulators of Wnt signaling. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2016]

GeneCards Summary for TCF7 Gene

TCF7 (Transcription Factor 7 (T-Cell Specific, HMG-Box)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TCF7 include Cleidocranial Dysplasia and Colorectal Cancer. Among its related pathways are Wnt Signaling Pathways: beta-Catenin-dependent Wnt Signaling and Nanog in Mammalian ESC Pluripotency. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and chromatin binding. An important paralog of this gene is TCF7L2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TCF7 Gene

  • Transcriptional activator involved in T-cell lymphocyte differentiation. Necessary for the survival of CD4(+) CD8(+) immature thymocytes. Isoforms lacking the N-terminal CTNNB1 binding domain cannot fulfill this role. Binds to the T-lymphocyte-specific enhancer element (5-WWCAAAG-3) found in the promoter of the CD3E gene. May also act as feedback transcriptional repressor of CTNNB1 and TCF7L2 target genes. TLE1, TLE2, TLE3 and TLE4 repress transactivation mediated by TCF7 and CTNNB1.
