HNF1B

(redirected from HNF1 homeobox B)

HNF1B

A gene on 17q12 that encodes a transcription factor that binds an inverted palindromic sequence of DNA.

Molecular pathology
Defects in HNF1B are a cause of maturity-onset diabetes of the young type 5 (MODY5, or renal cysts and diabetes syndrome) and contribute to the development of type-2 diabetes and prostate cancer hereditary type 11.
