Official Full Name
MAX dimerization protein 3
This gene encodes a member of the Myc superfamily of basic helix-loop-helix leucine zipper transcriptional regulators.;The encoded protein forms a heterodimer with the cofactor MAX which binds specific E-box DNA motifs in the promoters;of target genes and regulates their transcription. Disruption of the MAX-MXD3 complex is associated with uncontrolled;cell proliferation and tumorigenesis. Transcript variants of this gene encoding different isoforms have been;described.
