SIX homeobox 5
The gene SIX5 encodes a transcription factor that combines with EYA1 to activate several genes required to develop eye, ear, branchial arches, and kidney. Mutations in these two genes cause a similar clinical picture. Branchiootorenal dysplasia syndrome 2 is autosomal dominant.
Hoskins BE et al. (2007) Transcription factor SIX5 is mutated in patients with branchio-oto-renal syndrome.
Boucher CA et al. (1995) A novel homeodomain-encoding gene is associated with a large CpG island interrupted by the myotonic dystrophy unstable (CTG)n repeat.
