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.
  • Cellular localization

    Nucleus.

Images

  • ab202521 staining GATA4 in HeLa cells. The cells were fixed with 4% formaldehyde (10 min), permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 for 5 minutes and then blocked with 1% BSA/10% normal goat serum/0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h. The cells were then incubated overnight at +4°C with ab202521 at 1/100 dilution (shown in red) and ab195887, Mouse monoclonal to alpha Tubulin (Alexa Fluor® 488), at 1/250 dilution (shown in green). Nuclear DNA was labelled with DAPI (shown in blue).

     

    Image was taken with a confocal microscope (Leica-Microsystems, TCS SP8).
