GATA5


GATA binding protein 5


ENTREZID: 140628 | Type: Protein Coding | Map: 20q13.33

OMIM: 146255 | 131320


Summary Entrez
The protein encoded by this gene is a transcription factor that contains two GATA-type zinc fingers. The encoded protein is known to bind to hepatocyte nuclear factor-1alpha (HNF-1alpha), and this interaction is essential for cooperative activation of the intestinal lactase-phlorizin hydrolase promoter. In other organisms, similar proteins may be involved in the establishment of cardiac smooth muscle cell diversity. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
