Potential relevance to the human ageing process

Main reason for selection
Entry selected based on evidence linking the gene product to the regulation or control of genes previously linked to ageing
Description

HESX1 is an important regulator of development and, particularly, of pituitary development. It may antagonize the transcriptional activities of PROP1 [1726]. Mice without HESX1 develop pituitary dysplasia. Mutations in the human HESX1 gene have been associated with septooptic dysplasia [803]. As a member of the hypothalamus-pituitary system, HESX1 might, in theory, be involved in ageing even if it has so far not been directly associated with human ageing.
