• Official Full Name
  • paired box 4
  • Background
  • This gene is a member of the paired box (PAX) family of transcription factors. Members of this gene family typically contain a paired box domain, an octapeptide, and a paired-type homeodomain. These genes play critical roles during fetal development and cancer growth. The paired box 4 gene is involved in pancreatic islet development and mouse studies have demonstrated a role for this gene in differentiation of insulin-producing beta cells.

Protein Function

PAX4 has several biochemical functions, for example, DNA binding, RNA polymerase II distal enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding, transcriptional repressor activity, RNA polymerase II distal enhancer sequence-specific binding. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by PAX4 itself. We selected most functions PAX4 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with PAX4. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
