Gene: SOX9 (SRY-box transcription factor 9) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SOX9
Name: SRY-box transcription factor 9
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; protein kinase A catalytic subunit binding activity; and transcription regulatory region DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; positive regulation of cell differentiation; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the nucleoplasm and protein-containing complex. Implicated in 46 XY gonadal dysgenesis and campomelic dysplasia.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
