Transcription factor TRPS1/Elt-7 (IPR028440)

Short name: TRPS1/Elt-7

Family relationships



The TRPS1 gene encodes a multi zinc-finger nuclear regulator of chondrocyte proliferation and differentiation [PMID: 23691375]. Mutations in the gene cause trichorhinophalangeal syndrome (TRPS), an autosomal dominant skeletal dysplasia [PMID: 14560312]. The Trps1 protein also acts as regulator of histone deacetylation, interacting with two histone deacetylases, Hdac1 and Hdac4, thereby increasing their activity [PMID: 23892436].

This entry also includes Elt-7 from Caenorhabditis elegans. Elt-7 is a transcription factor involved in gut differentiation [PMID: 20807527].
