The protein encoded by this gene is a member of a family of neural specific, zinc finger-containing DNA-binding proteins. The protein binds to the promoter regions of proteolipid proteins of the central nervous system and plays a role in the developing nervous system. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for MYT1 Gene
MYT1 (Myelin Transcription Factor 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MYT1 include Periventricular Leukomalacia. Among its related pathways are AKT Siganaling Pathway and MECP2 and Associated Rett Syndrome. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include DNA-binding transcription factor activity and enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is MYT1L.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for MYT1 Gene
Binds to the promoter region of genes encoding proteolipid proteins of the central nervous system. May play a role in the development of neurons and oligodendroglia in the CNS. May regulate a critical transition point in oligodendrocyte lineage development by modulating oligodendrocyte progenitor proliferation relative to terminal differentiation and up-regulation of myelin gene transcription.
