POU6F2 Probable transcription factor likely to be involved in early steps in the differentiation of amacrine and ganglion cells. Recognizes and binds to the DNA sequence 5'-ATGCAAAT-3'. Isoform 1 does not bind DNA. Defects in POU6F2 are a cause of hereditary susceptibility to Wilms tumor 5 (WT5). WT5 is a pediatric malignancy of kidney and one of the most common solid cancers in childhood. Belongs to the POU transcription factor family. Class- 6 subfamily. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
