The protein encoded by this gene is a nuclear hormone receptor and transcriptional regulator. The encoded protein acts as a homodimer and binds to 5'-AGGTCA-3' repeats. Defects in this gene are a cause of Bosch-Boonstra optic atrophy syndrome (BBOAS). [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2014]
GeneCards Summary for NR2F1 Gene
NR2F1 (Nuclear Receptor Subfamily 2 Group F Member 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NR2F1 include Bosch-Boonstra-Schaaf Optic Atrophy Syndrome and Optic Atrophy-Intellectual Disability Syndrome. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and Nuclear Receptor transcription pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and transcription coactivator activity. An important paralog of this gene is RXRG.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NR2F1 Gene
Coup (chicken ovalbumin upstream promoter) transcription factor binds to the ovalbumin promoter and, in conjunction with another protein (S300-II) stimulates initiation of transcription. Binds to both direct repeats and palindromes of the 5-AGGTCA-3 motif. Represses transcriptional activity of LHCG.
