Summaries for TLX3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TLX3 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is an orphan homeobox protein that encodes a DNA-binding nuclear transcription factor. A translocation [t(5;14)(q35;q32)] involving this gene is associated with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) in children and young adults. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2015]

GeneCards Summary for TLX3 Gene

TLX3 (T-Cell Leukemia Homeobox 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TLX3 include Precursor T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and T-Cell Leukemia. Among its related pathways are Transcriptional misregulation in cancer and SIDS Susceptibility Pathways. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding.
