Homeobox protein Hox-A13 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the HOXA13 gene.[1][2][3]

Function

In vertebrates, the genes encoding the class of transcription factors called homeobox genes are found in clusters named A, B, C, and D on four separate chromosomes. Expression of these proteins is spatially and temporally regulated during embryonic development. This gene is part of the A cluster on chromosome 7 and encodes a DNA-binding transcription factor which may regulate gene expression, morphogenesis, and differentiation.[3]

Clinical significance

Expansion of a polyalanine tract in the encoded protein can cause hand-foot-genital syndrome , also known as hand-foot-uterus syndrome.[4]
