Entrez Gene Summary for SOX3 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the SOX (SRY-related HMG-box) family of transcription factors involved in the regulation of embryonic development and in the determination of the cell fate. The encoded protein may act as a transcriptional regulator after forming a protein complex with other proteins. Mutations in this gene have been associated with X-linked mental retardation with growth hormone deficiency. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SOX3 Gene

SOX3 (SRY (Sex Determining Region Y)-Box 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SOX3 include mental retardation, x-linked, with isolated growth hormone deficiency and x-linked intellectual disability with isolated growth hormone deficiency. Among its related pathways are ERK Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include RNA polymerase II core promoter sequence-specific DNA binding and RNA polymerase II transcription corepressor activity. An important paralog of this gene is SOX11.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SOX3 Gene

  • Transcription factor required during the formation of the hypothalamo-pituitary axis. May function as a switch in neuronal development. Keeps neural cells undifferentiated by counteracting the activity of proneural proteins and suppresses neuronal differentiation. Required also within the pharyngeal epithelia for craniofacial morphogenesis. Controls a genetic switch in male development. Is necessary for initiating male sex determination by directing the development of supporting cell precursors (pre-Sertoli cells) as Sertoli rather than granulosa cells (By similarity).

SOX3_HUMAN
  • Panhypopituitarism X-linked (PHPX) [MIM:312000]: Affected individuals have absent infundibulum, anterior pituitary hypoplasia, and ectopic posterior pituitary. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15800844}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Mental retardation, X-linked, with isolated growth hormone deficiency (MRXGH) [MIM:300123]: A disorder characterized by the association of variable degrees of mental retardation with panhypopituitarism, variable combinations of hypothyroidism, delayed pubertal development, and short stature due to growth hormone deficiency. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:12428212}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • 46,XX sex reversal 3 (SRXX3) [MIM:300833]: A condition in which male gonads develop in a genetic female (female to male sex reversal). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21183788}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. Copy number variations (CNV) encompassing or in close proximity to SOX3 are responsible for XX male reversal. These variations include two duplications of approximately 123 kb and 85 kb, the former of which spans the entire SOX3 gene; a 343 kb deletion immediately upstream of SOX3 that is probably responsible of altered regulation (and not increased dosage) of SOX3; a large (approximately 6 Mb) duplication that encompasses SOX3 and at least 18 additional distally located genes. Its proximal breakpoint falls within the SOX3 regulatory region. This large rearrangement has been found in a patient with XX male reversal and a complex phenotype that also includes a scrotal hypoplasia, microcephaly, developmental delay, and growth retardation.
