Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SIN3A Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a transcriptional regulatory protein. It contains paired amphipathic helix (PAH) domains, which are important for protein-protein interactions and may mediate repression by the Mad-Max complex. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for SIN3A Gene
SIN3A (SIN3 Transcription Regulator Family Member A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SIN3A include Witteveen-Kolk Syndrome and Mental Retardation, Autosomal Dominant 13. Among its related pathways are Nur77 Signaling in T-Cell and Macrophage Differentiation and Growth Inhibition by METS. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include DNA-binding transcription factor activity and transcription factor binding. An important paralog of this gene is SIN3B.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for SIN3A Gene
Acts as a transcriptional repressor. Corepressor for REST. Interacts with MXI1 to repress MYC responsive genes and antagonize MYC oncogenic activities. Also interacts with MXD1-MAX heterodimers to repress transcription by tethering SIN3A to DNA. Acts cooperatively with OGT to repress transcription in parallel with histone deacetylation. Involved in the control of the circadian rhythms. Required for the transcriptional repression of circadian target genes, such as PER1, mediated by the large PER complex through histone deacetylation. Cooperates with FOXK1 to regulate cell cycle progression probably by repressing cell cycle inhibitor genes expression (By similarity). Required for cortical neuron differentiation and callosal axon elongation (By similarity).
