MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: This protein encoded by this gene is a member of the basic-Helix-Hoop-Helix-Leucine zipper (bHLH-LZ) family and encodes a protein that can act as a transcription factor. Studies indicate that the basic region interacts with DNA at E-Box motifs, while the helix-loop-helix and leucine zipper domains are involved in dimerization with different partners. This protein is involved in a wide array of biological pathways, including cell cycle regulation, immune response, and responses to ultraviolet radiation. Mice lacking most of the coding exons of this gene often lacked both whiskers and nasal fur, and were prone to epileptic seizures, while mice lacking both this gene and another family member, Usf2, displayed embryonic lethality (PMID:9520440). Mutations in the human ortholog of this gene have been associated with Familial Combined Hyperlipidemia (FCHL) in humans. Pseudogenes of this gene are found on chromosome 11 and the X chromosome. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2015]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous null mutants exhibit slight behavioral abnormalities. Females exhibit barbering and some have seizures. This knockout mutation (heterozygous or homozygous) acts as an enhancer of a null mutation of Usf2, resulting in embryonic lethality. [provided by MGI curators]
