Summaries for MAMLD1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MAMLD1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a mastermind-like domain containing protein. This protein may function as a transcriptional co-activator. Mutations in this gene are the cause of X-linked hypospadias type 2. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2010]

GeneCards Summary for MAMLD1 Gene

MAMLD1 (Mastermind Like Domain Containing 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MAMLD1 include Hypospadias 2, X-Linked and Hypospadias. Among its related pathways are Signaling by NOTCH1 and Gene Expression.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MAMLD1 Gene

  • Transactivates the HES3 promoter independently of NOTCH proteins. HES3 is a non-canonical NOTCH target gene which lacks binding sites for RBPJ.

  • Hypospadias 2, X-linked (HYSP2) [MIM:300758]: A common malformation in which the urethra opens on the ventral side of the penis, due to developmental arrest of urethral fusion. The opening can be located glandular, penile, or even more posterior in the scrotum or perineum. Hypospadias is a feature of several syndromic disorders, including the androgen insensitivity syndrome and Opitz syndrome. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17086185}.
