Protein Information
Synonyms HOD, HOP, LAGY, NECC1, OB1
Function Atypical homeodomain protein which does not bind DNA and is required to modulate cardiac growth and development. Acts via its interaction with SRF, thereby modulating the expression of SRF-dependent cardiac-specific genes and cardiac development. Prevents SRF-dependent transcription either by inhibiting SRF binding to DNA or by recruiting histone deacetylase (HDAC) proteins that prevent transcription by SRF. Overexpression causes cardiac hypertrophy (By similarity). May act as a tumor suppressor.
Cellular Location Nucleus {ECO:0000255|PROSITE- ProRule:PRU00108}
Tissue Location Widely expressed. Expressed in the heart, brain, placenta, lung, skeletal and smooth muscles, uterus, urinary bladder, kidney and spleen. Down-regulated in some types of cancer such as lung cancer, choriocarcinoma, head and neck squamous cell carcinoma and oral squamous cell carcinoma

HOPX is a small homeodomain protein that lacks normally conserved residues required for DNA binding (1). It is thought to act downstream of NKX2-5 and modulates serum response factor (SRF)-dependent cardiac-specific gene expression and cardiac development (1). HOPX also acts a tumor suppressor gene in multiple tumors and cancer cell lines (2,3). HOPX has been reported to regulate the proliferation/differentiation homeostasis in different cell types, including keratinocytes (4).
