Summaries for ZEB1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ZEB1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a zinc finger transcription factor. The encoded protein likely plays a role in transcriptional repression of interleukin 2. Mutations in this gene have been associated with posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy-3 and late-onset Fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described.[provided by RefSeq, Mar 2010]

GeneCards Summary for ZEB1 Gene

ZEB1 (Zinc Finger E-Box Binding Homeobox 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ZEB1 include corneal dystrophy, fuchs endothelial, 6 and corneal dystrophy, posterior polymorphous, 3. Among its related pathways are MicroRNAs in cancer and ERK Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and chromatin binding. An important paralog of this gene is ZEB2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ZEB1 Gene

  • Acts as a transcriptional repressor. Inhibits interleukin-2 (IL-2) gene expression. Enhances or represses the promoter activity of the ATP1A1 gene depending on the quantity of cDNA and on the cell type. Represses E-cadherin promoter and induces an epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) by recruiting SMARCA4/BRG1. Represses BCL6 transcription in the presence of the corepressor CTBP1. Positively regulates neuronal differentiation. Represses RCOR1 transcription activation during neurogenesis. Represses transcription by binding to the E box (5-CANNTG-3). Promotes tumorigenicity by repressing stemness-inhibiting microRNAs.
