    motifs/domains
  • N terminal DNA binding (DM)
  • a proline and serine-rich region
  • a functional NLS (nuclear localization signal) within the DM domain
  • HOMOLOGY
    interspecies homolog to Drosophila double sex
    homolog to C.elegans Mab3
    ortholog to F.rubripes
    ortholog to T.nigroviridis Dmrt3
    intraspecies paralog to DMRT1 and DMRT2

    basic FUNCTION
  • implicated in sexual development, and also may be involved in development of non-gonadal tissues
  • DMRT3, induced NEUROG2 expression in the dorsal telencephalon
  • CELLULAR PROCESS nucleotide, transcription

    INTERACTION
    DNA
    RNA
    small molecule metal binding,
  • Zn2+
  • protein
  • FOXG1 binds to mammalian-specific noncoding sequences to repress over 12 transcription factors expressed in early progenitors, including EBF2/3, DMRT3, DMRTA1, and EYA2
  • DMRTA2 upregulates DMRT3 expression and negatively regulates its own expression, which may stabilize the level of DMRTA2, and likely DMRTA2, together with DMRT3, regulate patterning of the cerebral cortex
