Transcription factor HNF4alpha

The gene encodes a transcription factor, which regulates among others the transcription of HNF1-alpha. When mutated, it causes autosomal dominant MODY1 diabetes and hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia.

Phenotype

Along with MODY1 the mutation R76W can cause atypical dominant Fanconi syndrome.[Error: Macro 'ref' doesn't exist]
