Summaries for PAX4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PAX4 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the paired box (PAX) family of transcription factors. Members of this gene family typically contain a paired box domain, an octapeptide, and a paired-type homeodomain. These genes play critical roles during fetal development and cancer growth. The paired box 4 gene is involved in pancreatic islet development and mouse studies have demonstrated a role for this gene in differentiation of insulin-producing beta cells.

GeneCards Summary for PAX4 Gene

PAX4 (Paired Box 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PAX4 include diabetes mellitus, ketosis-prone and maturity-onset diabetes of the young, type ix. Among its related pathways are L1CAM interactions and Regulation of beta-cell development. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and double-stranded DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is PAX8.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PAX4 Gene

  • Plays an important role in the differentiation and development of pancreatic islet beta cells. Transcriptional repressor that binds to a common element in the glucagon, insulin and somatostatin promoters. Competes with PAX6 for this same promoter binding site. Isoform 2 appears to be a dominant negative form antagonizing PAX4 transcriptional activity

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot

PAX4_HUMAN
  • Diabetes mellitus, non-insulin-dependent (NIDDM) [MIM:125853]: A multifactorial disorder of glucose homeostasis caused by a lack of sensitivity to the bodys own insulin. Affected individuals usually have an obese body habitus and manifestations of a metabolic syndrome characterized by diabetes, insulin resistance, hypertension and hypertriglyceridemia. The disease results in long-term complications that affect the eyes, kidneys, nerves, and blood vessels. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Diabetes mellitus, insulin-dependent (IDDM) [MIM:222100]: A multifactorial disorder of glucose homeostasis that is characterized by susceptibility to ketoacidosis in the absence of insulin therapy. Clinical features are polydipsia, polyphagia and polyuria which result from hyperglycemia-induced osmotic diuresis and secondary thirst. These derangements result in long-term complications that affect the eyes, kidneys, nerves, and blood vessels. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Diabetes mellitus, ketosis-prone (KPD) [MIM:612227]: An atypical form of diabetes mellitus characterized by an acute initial presentation with severe hyperglycemia and ketosis, as seen in classic type 1 diabetes, but after initiation of insulin therapy, prolonged remission is often possible with cessation of insulin therapy and maintenance of appropriate metabolic control. Metabolic studies show a markedly blunted insulin secretory response to glucose, partially reversible with the improvement of blood glucose control. Variable levels of insulin resistance are observed, especially in obese patients. Pancreatic beta-cell autoimmunity is a rare finding. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Maturity-onset diabetes of the young 9 (MODY9) [MIM:612225]: A form of diabetes that is characterized by an autosomal dominant mode of inheritance, onset in childhood or early adulthood (usually before 25 years of age), a primary defect in insulin secretion and frequent insulin-independence at the beginning of the disease. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17426099}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
