Previous Symbols for KLF9 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a transcription factor that binds to GC box elements located in the promoter. Binding of the encoded protein to a single GC box inhibits mRNA expression while binding to tandemly repeated GC box elements activates transcription. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for KLF9 Gene
KLF9 (Kruppel-Like Factor 9) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Diurnally regulated genes with circadian orthologs. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is KLF2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KLF9 Gene
Transcription factor that binds to GC box promoter elements. Selectively activates mRNA synthesis from genes containing tandem repeats of GC boxes but represses genes with a single GC box. Acts as an epidermal circadian transcription factor regulating keratinocyte proliferation (PubMed:22711835).
