Gene: GATA6 (GATA binding protein 6) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GATA6
Name: GATA binding protein 6
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; protein kinase binding activity; and transcription regulatory region DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; negative regulation of transforming growth factor beta production; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to nuclear membrane and nucleoplasm. Implicated in colorectal adenocarcinoma and congenital heart disease (multiple). Biomarker of Barrett's esophagus and pulmonary hypertension.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: ASD9; AVSD5; GATA-binding factor 6; GATA-binding protein 6; PACHD; transcription factor GATA-6
