Gene Name:
hes family bHLH transcription factor 1

hairy1 , Xhairy1 , hes-1 , hes1-a , hes1-b ( Add synonyms , Nomenclature history )

Gene Function:
helix-loop-helix transcription factor/transcriptional repressor

Protein Function :
Transcriptional repressor of a subset of early mesodermal genes including myod1 and t/bra. Binds DNA on N-box motifs: 5'-CACNAG-3'. Acts as a negative regulator of myogenesis, mediating Notch signaling...[+]
