HOXA7

A gene on chromosome 7p15.2 that encodes a DNA-binding transcription factor, which provides cells with specific positional identities along the anterior-posterior axis during embryonic development and is involved in gene expression, morphogenesis and differentiation. HOXA7 protein represses the transcription of differentiation-specific genes during keratinocyte proliferation.
