Gene Summary

Enables several functions, including DNA binding activity; heparin binding activity; and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of DNA ligation; positive regulation of cytokine production; and response to bacterium. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including DNA geometric change; induction of positive chemotaxis; and positive regulation of mesenchymal cell proliferation. Located in several cellular components, including cytosol; extracellular space; and membrane raft. Used to study congestive heart failure; high grade glioma; myocardial infarction; pulmonary hypertension; and sciatic neuropathy. Biomarker of several diseases, including atherosclerosis; colon adenocarcinoma; hydrocephalus; middle cerebral artery infarction; and obstructive jaundice. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Orthologous to human HMGB1 (high mobility group box 1). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
