Summaries for GATA6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for GATA6 Gene

  • This gene is a member of a small family of zinc finger transcription factors that play an important role in the regulation of cellular differentiation and organogenesis during vertebrate development. This gene is expressed during early embryogenesis and localizes to endo- and mesodermally derived cells during later embryogenesis and thereby plays an important role in gut, lung, and heart development. Mutations in this gene are associated with several congenital defects. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2012]

GeneCards Summary for GATA6 Gene

GATA6 (GATA Binding Protein 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GATA6 include pancreatic agenesis and congenital heart defects and atrial septal defect 9. Among its related pathways are Platelet activation, signaling and aggregation and Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and chromatin binding. An important paralog of this gene is GATA5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GATA6 Gene

  • Transcriptional activator that regulates SEMA3C and PLXNA2 (PubMed:19666519). Involved in gene regulation specifically in the gastric epithelium (PubMed:9315713).

GATA6_HUMAN
  • Conotruncal heart malformations (CTHM) [MIM:217095]: A group of congenital heart defects involving the outflow tracts. Examples include truncus arteriosus communis, double-outlet right ventricle and transposition of great arteries. Truncus arteriosus communis is characterized by a single outflow tract instead of a separate aorta and pulmonary artery. In transposition of the great arteries, the aorta arises from the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery from the left ventricle. In double outlet of the right ventricle, both the pulmonary artery and aorta arise from the right ventricle. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19666519}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. GATA6 mutations have been found in patients with non-syndromic persistent truncus arteriosus (PubMed:19666519). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19666519}.
  • Atrial septal defect 9 (ASD9) [MIM:614475]: A congenital heart malformation characterized by incomplete closure of the wall between the atria resulting in blood flow from the left to the right atria. Some patients manifest tricuspid valve disease, pulmonary valve disease, and pulmonary artery hypertension. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20631719}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) [MIM:187500]: A congenital heart anomaly which consists of pulmonary stenosis, ventricular septal defect, dextroposition of the aorta (aorta is on the right side instead of the left) and hypertrophy of the right ventricle. In this condition, blood from both ventricles (oxygen-rich and oxygen-poor) is pumped into the body often causing cyanosis. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20581743, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20631719}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Atrioventricular septal defect 5 (AVSD5) [MIM:614474]: A congenital heart malformation characterized by a common atrioventricular junction coexisting with deficient atrioventricular septation. The complete form involves underdevelopment of the lower part of the atrial septum and the upper part of the ventricular septum; the valve itself is also shared. A less severe form, known as ostium primum atrial septal defect, is characterized by separate atrioventricular valvar orifices despite a common junction. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20581743}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Pancreatic agenesis and congenital heart defects (PACHD) [MIM:600001]: An autosomal dominant disease characterized by pancreatic severe hypoplasia or agenesis, diabetes mellitus, and congenital heart abnormalities including ventricular septal defect, patent ductus arteriosus, pulmonary artery stenosis, truncus arteriosus and tetralogy of Fallot. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22158542}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
