Transcription factor SOX-6 (IPR027153)

Short name: SOX-6

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



Transcription factor SOX-6 belongs to the sex determining region y-related (SRY) transcription factor family that contains a conserved DNA-binding domain termed the high mobility group box and has the ability to bind the minor groove of DNA. Sox-6 is a transcriptional activator and plays a key role in several developmental processes, including neurogenesis and skeleton formation [PMID: 21495113].
