Gene: SIX1 (SIX homeobox 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SIX1
Name: SIX homeobox 1
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II and protein localization to nucleus. Localizes to the nucleolus and nucleoplasm. Implicated in autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 23; branchiootorenal syndrome; and nephroblastoma. Biomarker of breast cancer; hepatocellular carcinoma; nephroblastoma; neurilemmoma; and ovarian carcinoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
