Summaries for TCF20 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TCF20 Gene

  • This gene encodes a transcription factor that recognizes the platelet-derived growth factor-responsive element in the matrix metalloproteinase 3 promoter. The encoded protein is thought to be a transcriptional coactivator, enhancing the activity of transcription factors such as JUN and SP1. Mutations in this gene are associated with autism spectrum disorders. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2015]

GeneCards Summary for TCF20 Gene

TCF20 (Transcription Factor 20) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TCF20 include Vertebrobasilar Insufficiency and Breast Sarcoma. Among its related pathways are PAK Pathway and ERK Signaling. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include transcription coactivator activity. An important paralog of this gene is RAI1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TCF20 Gene

  • Transcriptional activator that binds to the regulatory region of MMP3 and thereby controls stromelysin expression. It stimulates the activity of various transcriptional activators such as JUN, SP1, PAX6 and ETS1, suggesting a function as a coactivator.
