Gene: SOX17 (SRY-box transcription factor 17) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SOX17
Name: SRY-box transcription factor 17
Description: Exhibits beta-catenin binding activity and transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; mRNA transcription by RNA polymerase II; and protein destabilization. Localizes to the nucleus and transcription factor complex. Implicated in vesicoureteral reflux.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
