Homeobox protein Hox-B7 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the HOXB7 gene.[1][2]

Function

This gene is a member of the Antp homeobox family and encodes a protein with a homeobox DNA-binding domain. It is included in a cluster of homeobox B genes located on chromosome 17. The encoded nuclear protein functions as a sequence-specific transcription factor that is involved in cell proliferation and differentiation. Increased expression of this gene is associated with some cases of melanoma and ovarian carcinoma.[3]

Interactions

HOXB7 has been shown to interact with PBX1[4] and CREB-binding protein.[5]
