UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FOXH1 Gene
Transcriptional activator. Recognizes and binds to the DNA sequence 5-TGT[GT][GT]ATT-3. Required for induction of the goosecoid (GSC) promoter by TGF-beta or activin signaling. Forms a transcriptionally active complex containing FOXH1/SMAD2/SMAD4 on a site on the GSC promoter called TARE (TGF-beta/activin response element).
