GeneCards Summary for HEXIM1 Gene
HEXIM1 (Hexamethylene Bisacetamide Inducible 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Initiation of transcription and translation elongation at the HIV-1 LTR and Chromatin Regulation / Acetylation. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include cyclin-dependent protein serine/threonine kinase inhibitor activity and snRNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is HEXIM2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HEXIM1 Gene
Transcriptional regulator which functions as a general RNA polymerase II transcription inhibitor (PubMed:14580347, PubMed:15713661, PubMed:15201869). In cooperation with 7SK snRNA sequesters P-TEFb in a large inactive 7SK snRNP complex preventing RNA polymerase II phosphorylation and subsequent transcriptional elongation (PubMed:12832472, PubMed:14580347, PubMed:15713661, PubMed:15201869). May also regulate NF-kappa-B, ESR1, NR3C1 and CIITA-dependent transcriptional activity (PubMed:15940264, PubMed:15941832, PubMed:17088550). Plays a role in the regulation of DNA virus-mediated innate immune response by assembling into the HDP-RNP complex, a complex that serves as a platform for IRF3 phosphorylation and subsequent innate immune response activation through the cGAS-STING pathway (PubMed:28712728).
