Previous GeneCards Identifiers for NEUROG3 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factor involved in neurogenesis. The encoded protein likely acts as a heterodimer with another bHLH protein. Defects in this gene are a cause of congenital malabsorptive diarrhea 4 (DIAR4).[provided by RefSeq, May 2010]
GeneCards Summary for NEUROG3 Gene
NEUROG3 (Neurogenin 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NEUROG3 include Diarrhea 4, Malabsorptive, Congenital and Diarrhea. Among its related pathways are Notch-mediated HES/HEY network and Embryonic and Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Differentiation Pathways and Lineage-specific Markers. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include DNA-binding transcription factor activity and RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is NEUROG1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for NEUROG3 Gene
Acts as a transcriptional regulator. Together with NKX2-2, initiates transcriptional activation of NEUROD1. Involved in neurogenesis. Also required for the specification of a common precursor of the 4 pancreatic endocrine cell types (By similarity).
