    basic FUNCTION
  • modulator of LINE retroposons promoter activity
  • playing a role in the developing nervous system
  • playing a central regulatory role during neuronal maturation and mechanistically separate cell cycle withdrawal from the establishment of neuronal properties
  • playing a central role in regulating events that promote neurite growth and neuron survival
  • expression of SOX11 and POU3F3 may be modulated by the cell-type specific machinery
  • required for neuron survive and neurite growth
  • transcription factor that is involved in tissue remodeling during embryogenesis and is crucial for neurogenesis
  • pathogenic role of SOX11 is associated with its de novo expression in some aggressive lymphoid malignancies, which is mediated by a shift from inactivating to activating histone modifications
  • SOX11 and SOX4 play critical roles in retinal development, during which they display specific and unique expression patterns
  • contributes to tumor development by altering the terminal B-cell differentiation program of mantle cell lymphoma
  • CELLULAR PROCESS nucleotide, transcription, regulation

  • DBN1, SETMAR, HILPDA, are direct targets of the SOX11 protein (are direct transcriptional targets of the SOX11 protein)
  • SOX11 represents a synergistic factor for WT1 in regulating the WNT4 gene expression that is critical for nephrogenesis during kidney ontogeny
  • regulation of TANK expression is, at least in part, controlled by the injury-associated transcription factor SOX11
  • PAX5 is one of the major SOX11 direct targets
  • SOX11 is a potential regulator of GDF5 expression in joint maintenance, suggesting a possible role in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis
  • SOX11 promotes tumor angiogenesis through transcriptional regulation of PDGFA in mantle cell lymphoma
