Summary
This gene encodes a member of the heat shock factor (HSF) family of transcriptional activators for heat shock proteins. This gene is a candidate gene for azoospermia, since it localizes to a region of chromosome Y that is sometimes deleted in infertile males. The genome has two identical copies of this gene within a palindromic region; this record represents the more telomeric copy. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.

    Status: REVIEWED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (2) includes a different exon in the 3' coding region, resulting in a frameshift and earlier termination codon, compared to variant 1. The resulting isoform (2) is shorter and has a distinct C-terminus compared to isoform 1. Isoform 2 lacks the HFS-type DNA-binding domain found in isoform 1.

    Status: REVIEWED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (3) has an alternate 3' splice pattern, compared to variant 1. The transcript is sufficiently abundant to represent as a RefSeq record; however, the predicted protein is not represented because the transcript is a candidate for nonsense-mediated decay (NMD).
