hes family bHLH transcription factor 1
This protein belongs to the basic helix-loop-helix family of transcription factors. It is a transcriptional repressor;of genes that require a bHLH protein for their transcription. The protein has a particular type of basic domain that;contains a helix interrupting protein that binds to the N-box rather than the canonical E-box.
