Summaries for FOXA2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FOXA2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the forkhead class of DNA-binding proteins. These hepatocyte nuclear factors are transcriptional activators for liver-specific genes such as albumin and transthyretin, and they also interact with chromatin. Similar family members in mice have roles in the regulation of metabolism and in the differentiation of the pancreas and liver. This gene has been linked to sporadic cases of maturity-onset diabetes of the young. Transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified for this gene.

GeneCards Summary for FOXA2 Gene

FOXA2 (Forkhead Box A2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FOXA2 include Meckel Diverticulum and Maturity-Onset Diabetes Of The Young. Among its related pathways are Ectoderm Differentiation and Mesodermal Commitment Pathway. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include DNA binding transcription factor activity and transcription factor binding. An important paralog of this gene is FOXA1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FOXA2 Gene

  • Transcription factor that is involved in embryonic development, establishment of tissue-specific gene expression and regulation of gene expression in differentiated tissues. Is thought to act as a pioneer factor opening the compacted chromatin for other proteins through interactions with nucleosomal core histones and thereby replacing linker histones at target enhancer and/or promoter sites. Binds DNA with the consensus sequence 5-[AC]A[AT]T[AG]TT[GT][AG][CT]T[CT]-3 (By similarity). In embryonic development is required for notochord formation. Involved in the development of multiple endoderm-derived organ systems such as the liver, pancreas and lungs; FOXA1 and FOXA2 seem to have at least in part redundant roles. Originally described as a transcription activator for a number of liver genes such as AFP, albumin, tyrosine aminotransferase, PEPCK, etc. Interacts with the cis-acting regulatory regions of these genes. Involved in glucose homeostasis; regulates the expression of genes important for glucose sensing in pancreatic beta-cells and glucose homeostasis. Involved in regulation of fat metabolism. Binds to fibrinogen beta promoter and is involved in IL6-induced fibrinogen beta transcriptional activation.
