SOX17 (transcription factor SOX-17) belongs to the SRY-related HMB box family of transcription factors. It acts as a transcription regulator that binds target promoter DNA and bends the DNA. It binds to the sequences 5'-AACAAT-'3 or 5'-AACAAAG-3'. SOX17 modulates transcriptional regulation via WNT3A and inhibits Wnt signaling. It promotes degradation of activated CTNNB1. SOX17 plays an essential role in the regulation of embryonic development and is required for normal looping of the embryonic hear tube and for normal development of the definitive gut endoderm. Mutations in the gene can result in vesicoureteral reflux.View more
