Summaries for MYT1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MYT1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of a family of neural specific, zinc finger-containing DNA-binding proteins. The protein binds to the promoter regions of proteolipid proteins of the central nervous system and plays a role in the developing nervous system. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for MYT1 Gene

MYT1 (Myelin Transcription Factor 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MYT1 include Periventricular Leukomalacia and Hemifacial Microsomia. Among its related pathways are Cyclins and Cell Cycle Regulation and Integrated Breast Cancer Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is MYT1L.
