Entrez Gene Summary for NEUROG3 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factor involved in neurogenesis. The encoded protein likely acts as a heterodimer with another bHLH protein. Defects in this gene are a cause of congenital malabsorptive diarrhea 4 (DIAR4).[provided by RefSeq, May 2010]

GeneCards Summary for NEUROG3 Gene

NEUROG3 (Neurogenin 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NEUROG3 include diarrhea 4, malabsorptive, congenital and congenital malabsorptive diarrhea due to paucity of enteroendocrine cells. Among its related pathways are L1CAM interactions and Regulation of beta-cell development. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription coactivator activity and double-stranded DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is BHLHA15.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NEUROG3 Gene

  • Acts as a transcriptional regulator. Together with NKX2-2, initiates transcriptional activation of NEUROD1. Involved in neurogenesis. Also required for the specification of a common precursor of the 4 pancreatic endocrine cell types (By similarity).
