Gene: HNF4A (hepatocyte nuclear factor 4 alpha) Homo sapiens
Symbol: HNF4A
Name: hepatocyte nuclear factor 4 alpha
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription factor activity; fatty acid binding activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including blood coagulation; ornithine metabolic process; and regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Localizes to the cytoplasm and nucleoplasm. Implicated in Fanconi syndrome; familial combined hyperlipidemia; hypoglycemia; maturity-onset diabetes of the young type 1; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Biomarker of hepatocellular carcinoma and liver cirrhosis.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
