Summaries for HNF1B Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for HNF1B Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the homeodomain-containing superfamily of transcription factors. The protein binds to DNA as either a homodimer, or a heterodimer with the related protein hepatocyte nuclear factor 1-alpha. The gene has been shown to function in nephron development, and regulates development of the embryonic pancreas. Mutations in this gene result in renal cysts and diabetes syndrome and noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, and expression of this gene is altered in some types of cancer. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009]

GeneCards Summary for HNF1B Gene

HNF1B (HNF1 Homeobox B) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HNF1B include Renal Cysts And Diabetes Syndrome and Diabetes Mellitus, Noninsulin-Dependent. Among its related pathways are PAK Pathway and Regulation of beta-cell development. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include DNA binding transcription factor activity and protein heterodimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is HNF1A.

  • Diabetes mellitus, non-insulin-dependent (NIDDM) [MIM:125853]: A multifactorial disorder of glucose homeostasis caused by a lack of sensitivity to the bodys own insulin. Affected individuals usually have an obese body habitus and manifestations of a metabolic syndrome characterized by diabetes, insulin resistance, hypertension and hypertriglyceridemia. The disease results in long-term complications that affect the eyes, kidneys, nerves, and blood vessels. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:12161522}. Note=Disease susceptibility may be associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Prostate cancer, hereditary, 11 (HPC11) [MIM:611955]: A condition associated with familial predisposition to cancer of the prostate. Most prostate cancers are adenocarcinomas that develop in the acini of the prostatic ducts. Other rare histopathologic types of prostate cancer that occur in approximately 5% of patients include small cell carcinoma, mucinous carcinoma, prostatic ductal carcinoma, transitional cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma, adenoid cystic carcinoma (basaloid), signet-ring cell carcinoma and neuroendocrine carcinoma. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:18264097}. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Renal cysts and diabetes syndrome (RCAD) [MIM:137920]: An autosomal dominant disorder comprising non-diabetic renal disease resulting from abnormal renal development, and diabetes, which in some cases occurs earlier than age 25 years and is thus consistent with a diagnosis of maturity-onset diabetes of the young (MODY5). The renal disease is highly variable and includes renal cysts, glomerular tufts, aberrant nephrogenesis, primitive tubules, irregular collecting systems, oligomeganephronia, enlarged renal pelves, abnormal calyces, small kidney, single kidney, horseshoe kidney, and hyperuricemic nephropathy. Affected individuals may also have abnormalities of the genital tract. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10484768, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10672455, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11845238, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11918730, ECO:0000269 PubMed:14583183, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15001636, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15068978, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15181075, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15930087, ECO:0000269 PubMed:16249435}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
