• Official Full Name
  • homeobox C5
  • Background
  • This gene belongs to the homeobox family of genes. The homeobox genes encode a highly conserved family of transcription factors that play an important role in morphogenesis in all multicellular organisms. Mammals possess four similar homeobox gene clusters, HOXA, HOXB, HOXC and HOXD, which are located on different chromosomes and consist of 9 to 11 genes arranged in tandem. This gene, HOXC5, is one of several homeobox HOXC genes located in a cluster on chromosome 12. Three genes, HOXC5, HOXC4 and HOXC6, share a 5 non-coding exon. Transcripts may include the shared exon spliced to the gene-specific exons, or they may include only the gene-specific exons. Two alternatively spliced variants have been described for HOXC5. The transcript variant which includes the shared exon apparently doesnt encode a protein. The protein-coding transcript variant contains gene-specific exons only.

Protein Function

HOXC5 has several biochemical functions, for example, sequence-specific DNA binding, transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by HOXC5 itself. We selected most functions HOXC5 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with HOXC5. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
