The following MAFA gene sequences were retrieved from the NCBI Reference Sequence Database (RefSeq). These sequences represent the protein coding region of the MAFA gene which is encoded by the open reading frame (ORF) sequence. ORF sequences can be delivered in our standard vector, pcDNA3.1+/C-(K)DYK or the vector of your choice as an expression/transfection-ready ORF clone. Not the clone you want?

Summary: MAFA is a transcription factor that binds RIPE3b, a
conserved enhancer element that regulates pancreatic beta
cell-specific expression of the insulin gene (INS; MIM 176730)
(Olbrot et al., 2002 [PubMed 12011435]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar
Sequence Note: The RefSeq transcript and protein were derived from
genomic sequence to make the sequence consistent with the reference
genome assembly. The genomic coordinates used for the transcript
record were based on alignments.
