GeneCards Summary for NFIA Gene
NFIA (Nuclear Factor I A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NFIA include Brain Malformations With Or Without Urinary Tract Defects and Cleft Palate, Isolated. Among its related pathways are RNA Polymerase III Transcription Initiation and Activated PKN1 stimulates transcription of AR (androgen receptor) regulated genes KLK2 and KLK3. 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 NFIX.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for NFIA Gene
Recognizes and binds the palindromic sequence 5'-TTGGCNNNNNGCCAA-3' present in viral and cellular promoters and in the origin of replication of adenovirus type 2. These proteins are individually capable of activating transcription and replication.
