CDX1

A gene on chromosome 5q32 that encodes a DNA-binding protein belonging to caudal-related homeobox transcription factor gene family. The encoded protein regulates intestine-specific gene expression and enterocyte differentiation; it induces expression of the intestinal alkaline phosphatase gene, and inhibits beta-catenin/T-cell factor transcriptional activity.
