DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Neurogenic differentiation factor 6; Short=NeuroD6; AltName: Full=Class A basic helix-loop-helix protein 2; Short=bHLHa2; AltName: Full=Protein atonal homolog 2;
FUNCTION: Activates E box-dependent transcription in collaboration with TCF3/E47. May be a trans-acting factor involved in the development and maintenance of the mammalian nervous system. Transactivates the promoter of its own gene (By similarity).
SUBUNIT: Efficient DNA binding requires dimerization with another bHLH protein (By similarity).
SIMILARITY: Contains 1 bHLH (basic helix-loop-helix) domain.
SEQUENCE CAUTION: Sequence=AAG43167.1; Type=Frameshift; Positions=300, 307;

    Our results suggest that genes associated with clinical neurological disease also have detectable effects on subclinical phenotypes. These hypothesis generating data illustrate the use of an unbiased approach to discover novel pathways that may be involved in brain aging, and could be used to replicate observations made in other studies.

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.
