Previous Symbols for TEAD1 Gene
This gene encodes a ubiquitous transcriptional enhancer factor that is a member of the TEA/ATTS domain family. This protein directs the transactivation of a wide variety of genes and, in placental cells, also acts as a transcriptional repressor. Mutations in this gene cause Sveinsson's chorioretinal atrophy. Additional transcript variants have been described but their full-length natures have not been experimentally verified. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]
GeneCards Summary for TEAD1 Gene
TEAD1 (TEA Domain Family Member 1 (SV40 Transcriptional Enhancer Factor)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TEAD1 include sveinsson choreoretinal atrophy and helicoid peripapillary chorioretinal degeneration. Among its related pathways are ERK Signaling and ERK Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is TEAD2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TEAD1 Gene
Transcription factor which plays a key role in the Hippo signaling pathway, a pathway involved in organ size control and tumor suppression by restricting proliferation and promoting apoptosis. The core of this pathway is composed of a kinase cascade wherein MST1/MST2, in complex with its regulatory protein SAV1, phosphorylates and activates LATS1/2 in complex with its regulatory protein MOB1, which in turn phosphorylates and inactivates YAP1 oncoprotein and WWTR1/TAZ. Acts by mediating gene expression of YAP1 and WWTR1/TAZ, thereby regulating cell proliferation, migration and epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT) induction. Binds specifically and cooperatively to the SPH and GT-IIC enhansons (5-GTGGAATGT-3) and activates transcription in vivo in a cell-specific manner. The activation function appears to be mediated by a limiting cell-specific transcriptional intermediary factor (TIF). Involved in cardiac development. Binds to the M-CAT motif.
