MAX-like protein X

Mlx, Max-like protein X
The product of this gene belongs to the family of basic helix-loop-helix leucine zipper (bHLH-Zip) transcription factors. These factors form heterodimers with Mad proteins and play a role in proliferation, determination and differentiation. This gene product may act to diversify Mad family function by its restricted association with a subset of the Mad family of transcriptional repressors, namely, Mad1 and Mad4. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Papers on Mlx
The glucose-sensing transcription factor MLX promotes myogenesis via myokine signaling.
Demontis et al., Memphis, United States. In Genes Dev, Jan 2016
Here, we found that changes in glucose levels increase the activity of the glucose-responsive transcription factor MLX (Max-like protein X), which promotes and is necessary for myoblast fusion.

Mio acts in the Drosophila brain to control nutrient storage and feeding.
DiAngelo et al., Hempstead, United States. In Gene, Oct 2015
Mlx interactor (Mio), the Drosophila homolog of carbohydrate response element binding protein (ChREBP), functions as a transcription factor in the fat body of the fly to control triglyceride storage as well as feeding, suggesting that Mio may act in a nutrient-sensing pathway to coordinate food consumption and metabolism.

The transcription factor Cabut coordinates energy metabolism and the circadian clock in response to sugar sensing.
Hietakangas et al., Jerusalem, Israel. In Embo J, Jul 2015
For example, sugar feeding promotes lipogenesis by activating glycolytic and lipogenic genes through the Mondo/ChREBP-Mlx transcription factor complex.

Ayer et al., Salt Lake City, United States. In Mol Cell Biol, 2015
MondoA and its obligate transcription partner Mlx are basic helix-loop-helix leucine zipper (bHLHZip) transcription factors that sense and execute a glucose-responsive transcriptional program.
Spectral heart rate variability in rats with cyclophosphamide-induced hemorrhagic cystitis treated with cyclooxygenase inhibitors.
Thor et al., Kraków, Poland. In Folia Med Cracov, 2014
The ANS activity was estimated through the spectral analysis of heart rate variability (HRV) in CP-HC rats divided into three study groups: 1-control, 2-treated with meloxicam (MLX) that preferentially blocks COX-2, and 3-treated with piroxicam (PRX) that inhibits COX1 and 2 activity.
MondoA deficiency enhances sprint performance in mice.
Chan et al., Houston, United States. In Biochem J, 2014
