WD repeat domain 5

WDR5, WD-repeat protein-5
This gene encodes a member of the WD repeat protein family. WD repeats are minimally conserved regions of approximately 40 amino acids typically bracketed by gly-his and trp-asp (GH-WD), which may facilitate formation of heterotrimeric or multiprotein complexes. Members of this family are involved in a variety of cellular processes, including cell cycle progression, signal transduction, apoptosis, and gene regulation. This protein contains 7 WD repeats. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Synergistic effect of SRY and its direct target, WDR5, on Sox9 expression.
GeneRIF
Zhao et al., Nanjing, China. In Plos One, 2011
findings show that WDR5 is a direct target of SRY; the interaction of WDR5 and SRY activates Sox9 expression; results suggest that, in conjunction with SRY, WDR5 plays an important role in sex determination
