Hepatocyte nuclear factor 4, alpha

TCF, HNF4alpha, HNF-4, MODY, hepatocyte nuclear factor 4alpha
The protein encoded by this gene is a nuclear transcription factor which binds DNA as a homodimer. The encoded protein controls the expression of several genes, including hepatocyte nuclear factor 1 alpha, a transcription factor which regulates the expression of several hepatic genes. This gene may play a role in development of the liver, kidney, and intestines. Mutations in this gene have been associated with monogenic autosomal dominant non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus type I. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)
