SOX5

SOX5

A gene on chromosome 12p12.1 that encodes a member of the SOX (SRY-related HMG-box) family of transcription factors, which regulate embryonic development and determine cell fate. SOX5 may act as a transcription regulator after forming a complex with other proteins and may play a role in chondrogenesis.

The lab also found how SOX4, SOX11, and SOX5 - sections of DNA called transcription factors - control the expression of genes and operate cooperatively to shape this network in the developing embryo.
The LTR region of PERV has sites of binding factors, such as SOX5, Ets-1, Evil, GATA, v-Myb and CEBP, which are essential for transcription (Wilson et al.
