GeneCards Summary for MYBL1 Gene
MYBL1 (MYB Proto-Oncogene Like 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MYBL1 include Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma and Cutaneous Adenocystic Carcinoma. Among its related pathways are Preimplantation Embryo and IL4-mediated signaling events. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include chromatin binding and proximal promoter DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific. An important paralog of this gene is MYB.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for MYBL1 Gene
Transcription factor that specifically recognizes the sequence 5'-YAAC[GT]G-3' (PubMed:8058310, PubMed:7987850). Acts as a master regulator of male meiosis by promoting expression of piRNAs: activates expression of both piRNA precursor RNAs and expression of protein-coding genes involved in piRNA metabolism (By similarity). The piRNA metabolic process mediates the repression of transposable elements during meiosis by forming complexes composed of piRNAs and Piwi proteins and governs the methylation and subsequent repression of transposons, which is essential for the germline integrity (By similarity).
