Gene information for POU5F1B (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID5462
Official gene symbolPOU5F1B
Full namePOU class 5 homeobox 1B
Gene summaryThis intronless gene was thought to be a transcribed pseudogene of POU class 5 homeobox 1, however, it has been reported that this gene can encode a functional protein. The encoded protein is nearly the same length as and highly similar to the POU class 5 homeobox 1 transcription factor, has been shown to be a weak transcriptional activator and may play a role in carcinogenesis and eye development.
