Summaries for SALL1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SALL1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a zinc finger transcriptional repressor and may be part of the NuRD histone deacetylase complex (HDAC). Defects in this gene are a cause of Townes-Brocks syndrome (TBS) as well as bronchio-oto-renal syndrome (BOR). Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SALL1 Gene

SALL1 (Spalt-Like Transcription Factor 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SALL1 include hemifacial microsomia and townes-brocks syndrome. Among its related pathways are Wnt signaling pathway (KEGG) and Transcriptional Regulatory Network in Embryonic Stem Cell. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and beta-catenin binding. An important paralog of this gene is SALL3.

  • Townes-Brocks syndrome (TBS) [MIM:107480]: Rare, autosomal dominant malformation syndrome with a combination of imperforate anus, triphalangeal and supernumerary thumbs, malformed ears and sensorineural hearing loss. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. Some individuals with SALL1 mutations manifest a phenotype overlapping with TBS and bronchio-oto-renal syndrome. Clinical features include dysplastic ears, hypoplastic kidneys with impaired renal function, gastroesophageal reflux, hypermetropia, hypospadias, and mild developmental delay. Affected individuals lack the characteristic anal or hand malformations of TBS.
