Annotation
do not confuse entry term SRY (SEX DETERMINING REGION Y)-BOX PROTEINS with SRY SEX-DETERMINING REGION PROTEIN see SEX-DETERMINING REGION Y PROTEIN
Scope Note
A large family of structurally-related transcription factors that were originally discovered based upon their close sequence homology to an HMG-box domain found in SEX-DETERMINING REGION Y PROTEIN. Many SOX transcription factors play important roles in regulating CELL DIFFERENTIATION. The numerous members of this family are organized in several subgroups according to structural identities found within the proteins.
