GeneCards Summary for MYF5 Gene
MYF5 (Myogenic Factor 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MYF5 include Rhabdomyosarcoma and Skeletal Muscle Cancer. Among its related pathways are miRs in Muscle Cell Differentiation and Regulation of Wnt-mediated beta catenin signaling and target gene transcription. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding and RNA polymerase II core promoter proximal region sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is MYOD1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MYF5 Gene
Acts as a transcriptional activator that promotes transcription of muscle-specific target genes and plays a role in muscle differentiation. Together with MYOG and MYOD1, co-occupies muscle-specific gene promoter core region during myogenesis. Induces fibroblasts to differentiate into myoblasts. Probable sequence specific DNA-binding protein.
