Gene information for TFAM (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID7019
Official gene symbolTFAM
Full nametranscription factor A, mitochondrial
Gene summaryThis gene encodes a mitochondrial transcription factor that is a key activator of mitochondrial transcription as well as a participant in mitochondrial genome replication. Studies in mice have demonstrated that this gene product is required to regulate the mitochondrial genome copy number and is essential for embryonic development. A mouse model for Kearns-Sayre syndrome was produced when expression of this gene was eliminated by targeted disruption in heart and muscle cells. [provided by RefSeq]
