Summaries for HIF3A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for HIF3A Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is the alpha-3 subunit of one of several alpha/beta-subunit heterodimeric transcription factors that regulate many adaptive responses to low oxygen tension (hypoxia). The alpha-3 subunit lacks the transactivation domain found in factors containing either the alpha-1 or alpha-2 subunits. It is thought that factors containing the alpha-3 subunit are negative regulators of hypoxia-inducible gene expression. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2011]

GeneCards Summary for HIF3A Gene

HIF3A (Hypoxia Inducible Factor 3, Alpha Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HIF3A include extratemporal epilepsy and hypoxia. Among its related pathways are Cellular Senescence and Regulation of Hypoxia-inducible Factor (HIF) by Oxygen. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and protein dimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is AHRR.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HIF3A Gene

  • Acts as a transcriptional regulator in adaptive response to low oxygen tension. Acts as a regulator of hypoxia-inducible gene expression (PubMed:11573933, PubMed:16126907, PubMed:19694616, PubMed:20416395, PubMed:21069422). Functions as an inhibitor of angiogenesis in hypoxic cells of the cornea. Plays a role in the development of the cardiorespiratory system. May also be involved in apoptosis (By similarity).

  • Isoform 2: Attenuates the ability of transcription factor HIF1A to bind to hypoxia-responsive elements (HRE) located within the enhancer/promoter of hypoxia-inducible target genes and hence inhibits HRE-driven transcriptional activation. Also inhibits hypoxia-inducible ARNT-mediated gene expression.

  • Isoform 3: Attenuates the ability of transcription factor HIF1A to bind to hypoxia-responsive elements (HRE) located within the enhancer/promoter of hypoxia-inducible target genes and hence inhibits HRE-driven transcriptional activation.

  • isoform 4: Attenuates the ability of transcription factor HIF1A and EPAS1/HIF2A to bind to hypoxia-responsive elements (HRE) located within the enhancer/promoter of hypoxia-inducible target genes and hence inhibits HRE-driven transcriptional activation (PubMed:16126907, PubMed:17998805, PubMed:19694616, PubMed:20416395). May act as a tumor suppressor and inhibits malignant cell transformation (PubMed:17998805).

  • Isoform 5: Attenuates the ability of transcription factor HIF1A to bind to hypoxia-responsive elements (HRE) located within the enhancer/promoter of hypoxia-inducible target genes and hence inhibits HRE-driven transcriptional activation.
