Gene: HNF1B (HNF1 homeobox B) Homo sapiens
Symbol: HNF1B
Name: HNF1 homeobox B
Description: Exhibits DNA binding activity; DNA-binding transcription factor activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in animal organ development and positive regulation of transcription initiation from RNA polymerase II promoter. Localizes to nucleoplasm. Implicated in kidney disease; maturity-onset diabetes of the young type 5; pancreas disease; renal cell carcinoma; and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
