Summaries for USF3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for USF3 Gene

  • This gene encodes a large protein that contains a helix-loop-helix domain and a polyglutamine region. A deletion in the polyglutamine region was associated with risk for thyroid carcinoma. [provided by RefSeq, May 2017]

GeneCards Summary for USF3 Gene

USF3 (Upstream Transcription Factor Family Member 3) is a Protein Coding gene.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for USF3 Gene

  • Involved in the negative regulation of epithelial-mesenchymal transition, the process by which epithelial cells lose their polarity and adhesion properties to become mesenchymal cells with enhanced migration and invasive properties.
