Previous Symbols for POU4F3 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the POU-domain family of transcription factors. POU-domain proteins have been observed to play important roles in control of cell identity in several systems. This protein is found in the retina and may play a role in determining or maintaining the identities of a small subset of visual system neurons. Defects in this gene are the cause of non-syndromic sensorineural deafness autosomal dominant type 15. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]
GeneCards Summary for POU4F3 Gene
POU4F3 (POU Class 4 Homeobox 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with POU4F3 include deafness, autosomal dominant 15 and dfna15 nonsyndromic hearing loss and deafness. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is POU6F1.
