Summaries for EGR3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for EGR3 Gene

  • This gene encodes a transcriptional regulator that belongs to the EGR family of C2H2-type zinc-finger proteins. It is an immediate-early growth response gene which is induced by mitogenic stimulation. The protein encoded by this gene participates in the transcriptional regulation of genes in controling biological rhythm. It may also play a role in a wide variety of processes including muscle development, lymphocyte development, endothelial cell growth and migration, and neuronal development. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms.[provided by RefSeq, Dec 2010]

GeneCards Summary for EGR3 Gene

EGR3 (Early Growth Response 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with EGR3 include Patella, Chondromalacia Of and Ancylostomiasis. Among its related pathways are Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus infection and C-type lectin receptor signaling pathway. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include DNA binding transcription factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is EGR2.
