Summaries for SOX8 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SOX8 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the SOX (SRY-related HMG-box) family of transcription factors involved in the regulation of embryonic development and in the determination of the cell fate. The encoded protein may act as a transcriptional activator after forming a protein complex with other proteins. This protein may be involved in brain development and function. Haploinsufficiency for this protein may contribute to the mental retardation found in haemoglobin H-related mental retardation (ART-16 syndrome). [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SOX8 Gene

SOX8 (SRY-Box 8) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SOX8 include Myoblastoma and Campomelic Dysplasia. Among its related pathways are ERK Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and protein heterodimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is SOX9.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SOX8 Gene

  • May play a role in central nervous system, limb and facial development. May be involved in male sex determination. Binds the consensus motif 5-[AT][AT]CAA[AT]G-3 (By similarity).
