[11733035] Other Mouse Weak Math6 is initially expressed by neural precursor cells in the ventricular zone, but later by subsets of differentiating and mature neurones such as hippocampal neurones and cerebellar Purkinje cells. Mis-expression of Math6 with retrovirus in the developing retina induced neurogenesis, while inhibiting gliogenesis, without affecting cell proliferation and death. These results show that cells which would normally differentiate into glia adopted the neuronal fate by mis-expression of Math6, indicating that Math6 promotes neuronal vs. glial fate determination in the nervous system.

[12419857] Other Human Weak Immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization confirmed that many flow-responsive genes, including the novel basic helix-loop-helix transcription factor Hath6, are expressed in endothelial cells in vivo. Math6 may bepartially responsible for the establishment and maintenance of the flow-adapted endothelial phenotype in vivo.

EXPRESSION: A single major band of the expected size of 3 kb was detected in highly vascularized tissues, such as heart, lung, liver, and kidney.

No direct study of DNA binding

aka Math6 bHLH protein aka Hath6 aka okadin PMID 14872008 refers to a shear-response element, which might be relevant for someone interested in this gene (no evidence that this TF binds to the element) No evidence for sequence-specific binding - all inferred from bHLH domain
