Gene Name:
SRY (sex determining region Y)-box 17 beta, gene 2

tSox17beta , Xsox17 , sox17 ( Add synonyms , Nomenclature history )

Gene Function:
HMG-box transcription factor

Protein Function :
Transcription activator. Doesn't appear to bind to the consensus 5'-AACAAT-3' DNA binding site, but binds 5'-ATTGTT-3'. All of the sox17 proteins are required for embryonic endoderm development and gas...[+]
