Summaries for HNF4A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for HNF4A Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a nuclear transcription factor which binds DNA as a homodimer. The encoded protein controls the expression of several genes, including hepatocyte nuclear factor 1 alpha, a transcription factor which regulates the expression of several hepatic genes. This gene may play a role in development of the liver, kidney, and intestines. Mutations in this gene have been associated with monogenic autosomal dominant non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus type I. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants encoding several different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2012]

    Quaternary structure:
    • Homodimerization is required for HNF4-alpha to bind to its recognition site (PubMed:14982928). Interacts with CLOCK, ARNTL, CRY1, CRY2, PER1 and PER2 (PubMed:30530698). Interacts with NR0B2/SHP; the resulting heterodimer is transcriptionnally inactive (PubMed:28128295). Interacts with DDX3X; this interaction disrupts the interaction between HNF4 and NR0B2 that forms inactive heterodimers and enhances the formation of active HNF4 homodimers (PubMed:28128295).

Post-translational modifications for HNF4A Gene

  • Phosphorylated on tyrosine residue(s); phosphorylation is important for its DNA-binding activity. Phosphorylation may directly or indirectly play a regulatory role in the subnuclear distribution. Phosphorylation at Ser-313 by AMPK reduces the ability to form homodimers and bind DNA.
  • Acetylation at Lys-458 lowers transcriptional activation by about two-fold.
  • Ubiquitination at Lys234 and Lys307
  • Modification sites at PhosphoSitePlus

HNF4A_HUMAN
  • Maturity-onset diabetes of the young 1 (MODY1) [MIM:125850]: A form of diabetes that is characterized by an autosomal dominant mode of inheritance, onset in childhood or early adulthood (usually before 25 years of age), a primary defect in insulin secretion and frequent insulin-independence at the beginning of the disease. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10389854, ECO:0000269 PubMed:17407387, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9243109, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9313765}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Diabetes mellitus, non-insulin-dependent (NIDDM) [MIM:125853]: A multifactorial disorder of glucose homeostasis caused by a lack of sensitivity to the body's 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:9449683}. Note=Disease susceptibility may be associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Fanconi renotubular syndrome 4 with maturity-onset diabetes of the young (FRTS4) [MIM:616026]: A disease characterized by Fanconi syndrome associated with a beta cell phenotype of neonatal hyperinsulinism with macrosomia and young onset diabetes. Fanconi syndrome is a proximal tubulopathy resulting in generalised aminoaciduria, low molecular weight proteinuria, glycosuria, hyperphosphaturia and hypouricemia. Some FRTS4 patients have nephrocalcinosis, renal impairment, hypercalciuria with relative hypocalcemia, and hypermagnesemia. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22802087, ECO:0000269 PubMed:24285859}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
