Summaries for HSF2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for HSF2 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the HSF family of transcription factors that bind specifically to the heat-shock promoter element and activate transcription. Heat shock transcription factors activate heat-shock response genes under conditions of heat or other stresses. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2011]

GeneCards Summary for HSF2 Gene

HSF2 (Heat Shock Transcription Factor 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HSF2 include Acute Erythroid Leukemia. Among its related pathways are Proteolysis Putative SUMO-1 pathway. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include DNA binding transcription factor activity and sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is HSF1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HSF2 Gene

  • DNA-binding protein that specifically binds heat shock promoter elements (HSE) and activates transcription. In higher eukaryotes, HSF is unable to bind to the HSE unless the cells are heat shocked.
