Gene: BHLHB9 (basic helix-loop-helix family member b9) Homo sapiens
Symbol: BHLHB9
Name: basic helix-loop-helix family member b9
Description: This gene is a member of a gene family which encodes proteins with a basic helix-loop-helix domain. Other members of this gene family encode proteins which function as transcription factors, either enhancing or inhibiting transcription depending on the activity of other DNA binding proteins. The coding region of this gene is located entirely within the terminal exon. The encoded protein may be involved in the survival of neurons (PMID: 15034937). Multiple alternatively spliced variants, encoding the same protein, have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2011]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
