Target

  • Function
    Transcriptional activator that binds to the consensus sequence 5'-AGATAG-3' and plays a key role in cardiac development (PubMed:24000169). Involved in bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)-mediated induction of cardiac-specific gene expression (By similarity). Binds to BMP response element (BMPRE) DNA sequences within cardiac activating regions (By similarity). Acts as a transcriptional activator of ANF in cooperation with NKX2-5 (By similarity). Promotes cardiac myocyte enlargement (PubMed:20081228). Required during testicular development (PubMed:21220346). May play a role in sphingolipid signaling by regulating the expression of sphingosine-1-phosphate degrading enzyme, spingosine-1-phosphate lyase (PubMed:15734735).
  • Involvement in disease
    Atrial septal defect 2
    Ventricular septal defect 1
    Tetralogy of Fallot
    Atrioventricular septal defect 4
    Testicular anomalies with or without congenital heart disease
    GATA4 mutations can predispose to dilated cardiomyopathy (CMD), a disorder characterized by ventricular dilation and impaired systolic function, resulting in congestive heart failure and arrhythmia. Patients are at risk of premature death.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 2 GATA-type zinc fingers.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Methylation at Lys-300 attenuates transcriptional activity.

  • ab84593 staining GATA4 (green) in mouse embryo tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde, permeabilized in 1% Triton X-100 and blocked with 10% goat serum for 1 hour at room temperature; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in a citrate buffer. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/50 in 10% goat serum) for 16 hours at 4°C. An Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/400) was used as the secondary antibody. Red - Myh6/7, Blue - DAPI.
