Human Gene HEY1 (uc003ybl.3) Description and Page Index
  Description: Homo sapiens hairy/enhancer-of-split related with YRPW motif 1 (HEY1), transcript variant 2, mRNA.
RefSeq Summary (NM_001040708): This gene encodes a nuclear protein belonging to the hairy and enhancer of split-related (HESR) family of basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH)-type transcriptional repressors. Expression of this gene is induced by the Notch and c-Jun signal transduction pathways. Two similar and redundant genes in mouse are required for embryonic cardiovascular development, and are also implicated in neurogenesis and somitogenesis. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008].
