FOXP3 | GeneID:50943 | Homo sapiens

Gene Summary

[ - ] NCBI Entrez Gene

Gene ID 50943 Official Symbol FOXP3
Locus N/A Gene Type protein-coding
Synonyms AIID; DIETER; IPEX; JM2; MGC141961; MGC141963; PIDX; XPID
Full Name forkhead box P3
Description forkhead box P3
Chromosome Xp11.23
Also Known As FOXP3delta7; OTTHUMP00000025832; immune dysregulation, polyendocrinopathy, enteropathy, X-linked; immunodeficiency, polyendocrinopathy, enteropathy, X-linked; scurfin
Summary The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the forkhead/winged-helix family of transcriptional regulators. Defects in this gene are the cause of immunodeficiency polyendocrinopathy, enteropathy, X-linked syndrome (IPEX), also known as X-linked autoimmunity-immunodeficiency syndrome. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified. [provided by RefSeq]
