Gene: GATA4 (GATA binding protein 4) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GATA4
Name: GATA binding protein 4
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II transcription factor binding activity; and co-SMAD binding activity. Contributes to DNA-binding transcription factor activity. Involved in several processes, including heart development; intestinal epithelial cell differentiation; and male gonad development. Localizes to RNA polymerase II transcription regulator complex and nuclear body. Implicated in congenital heart disease (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: ASD2; GATA-binding factor 4; GATA-binding protein 4; MGC126629; TACHD; TOF; transcription factor GATA-4; VSD1
