• Official Full Name
  • paired box 5
  • Background
  • This gene encodes a member of the paired box (PAX) family of transcription factors. The central feature of this gene family is a novel, highly conserved DNA-binding motif, known as the paired box. Paired box transcription factors are important regulators in early development, and alterations in the expression of their genes are thought to contribute to neoplastic transformation. This gene encodes the B-cell lineage specific activator protein that is expressed at early, but not late stages of B-cell differentiation. Its expression has also been detected in developing CNS and testis and so the encoded protein may also play a role in neural development and spermatogenesis. This gene is located at 9p13, which is involved in t(9;14)(p13;q32) translocations recurring in small lymphocytic lymphomas of the plasmacytoid subtype, and in derived large-cell lymphomas. This translocation brings the potent E-mu enhancer of the IgH gene into close proximity of the PAX5 promoter, suggesting that the deregulation of transcription of this gene contributes to the pathogenesis of these lymphomas. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2013]

Protein Function

PAX5 has several biochemical functions, for example, RNA polymerase II core promoter proximal region sequence-specific DNA binding, protein binding, transcriptional activator activity, RNA polymerase II core promoter proximal region sequence-specific binding. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by PAX5 itself. We selected most functions PAX5 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with PAX5. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
