Previous Symbols for FOXI1 Gene
This gene belongs to the forkhead family of transcription factors which is characterized by a distinct forkhead domain. The specific function of this gene has not yet been determined; however, it is possible that this gene plays an important role in the development of the cochlea and vestibulum, as well as embryogenesis. Mutations in this gene may be associated with the common cavity phenotype. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for FOXI1 Gene
FOXI1 (Forkhead Box I1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FOXI1 include foxi1-related pendred syndrome and pendred syndrome. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and transcription regulatory region DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is FOXE3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FOXI1 Gene
Transcriptional activator required for the development of normal hearing, sense of balance and kidney function. Required for the expression of SLC26A4/PDS, JAG1 and COCH in a subset of epithelial cells and the development of the endolymphatic system in the inner ear. Also required for the expression of SLC4A1/AE1, SLC4A9/AE4, ATP6V1B1 and the differentiation of intercalated cells in the epithelium of distal renal tubules (By similarity).
