Gene: MEF2A (myocyte enhancer factor 2A) Homo sapiens
Analyze
Symbol: MEF2A
Name: myocyte enhancer factor 2A
Description: The protein encoded by this gene is a DNA-binding transcription factor that activates many muscle-specific, growth factor-induced, and stress-induced genes. The encoded protein can act as a homodimer or as a heterodimer and is involved in several cellular processes, including muscle development, neuronal differentiation, cell growth control, and apoptosis. Defects in this gene could be a cause of autosomal dominant coronary artery disease 1 with myocardial infarction (ADCAD1). Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2010]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: ADCAD1; MADS box transcription enhancer factor 2, polypeptide A (myocyte enhancer factor 2A); mef2; myocyte-specific enhancer factor 2A; RSRFC4; RSRFC9; serum response factor-like protein 1
