This protein belongs to the basic helix-loop-helix (BHLH) family of transcription factors. It activates E-box dependent transcription along with E47. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for ATOH1 Gene
ATOH1 (Atonal BHLH Transcription Factor 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ATOH1 include Goblet Cell Carcinoid and Sensorineural Hearing Loss. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include DNA-binding transcription factor activity and RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is NEUROD1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for ATOH1 Gene
Transcriptional regulator. Activates E box-dependent transcription in collaboration with TCF3/E47, but the activity is completely antagonized by the negative regulator of neurogenesis HES1. Plays a role in the differentiation of subsets of neural cells by activating E box-dependent transcription (By similarity).
