Human Gene SOX14 (ENST00000306087.3) from GENCODE V44
  Description: Homo sapiens SRY-box transcription factor 14 (SOX14), mRNA. (from RefSeq NM_004189)
RefSeq Summary (NM_004189): This intronless gene encodes a member of the SOX (SRY-related HMG-box) family of transcription factors involved in the regulation of embryonic development and in the determination of the cell fate. The encoded protein may act as a transcriptional regulator after forming a protein complex with other proteins. Mutations in this gene are suggested to be responsible for the limb defects associated with blepharophimosis, ptosis, epicanthus inversus syndrome (BPES) and Mobius syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]. Sequence Note: The RefSeq transcript was derived from the reference genome assembly. The genomic coordinates were determined from alignments.

ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on O95416
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.

-  Orthologous Genes in Other Species
  Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
