Target Background

Transcriptional regulator which controls the expression of hepatic genes during the transition of endodermal cells to hepatic progenitor cells, facilitating the recruitment of RNA pol II to the promoters of target genes. Activates the transcription of CYP2C38. Represses the CLOCK-ARNTL/BMAL1 transcriptional activity and is essential for circadian rhythm maintenance and period regulation in the liver and colon cells.
Gene References into Functions
  1. HNF4alpha constrains proliferation, migration, and maltransformation of hepatic progenitors. PMID: 28807057
  2. Transplantation of HNF4A overexpressing immortalized human hepatocytes (IHH) resulted in better liver function and survival of rats with acute liver failure (ALF) compared with IHH. HNF4A improved hepatic differentiation of IHH. Transplantation of HNF4A-overexpressing IHH could improve the liver function and survival in a rat model of ALF. PMID: 28870599
  3. Tg737 regulates a Wnt/beta-catenin/Snail-HNF4alpha negative feedback circuit, thereby blocking EMT and the malignant transformation of liver stem cells to liver cancer stem cells. PMID: 28536011

  5. Apoc3 expression is regulated by HNF4a and COUP-TFII but not by retinoic acid in rat hepatocytes. PMID: 24234421
  6. Dietary medium chain triglycerides prevent alcohol-induced hepatic lipid accumulation by preserving HNF4alpha levels in liver. PMID: 23126616
  7. Methyl donor deficiency impairs fatty acid oxidation through PGC-1alpha hypomethylation and decreased ER-alpha, ERR-alpha, and HNF-4alpha in the rat liver. PMID: 22521344
  8. Data suggest that environmentally induced epigenetic changes at the Hnf4a enhancer alter its interaction with the P2 promoter, and consequently determine T2D risk. PMID: 21385945
  9. The hepatic expression and activity of PPARalpha, SREBP-1, and hepatocyte nuclear factor-4alpha (HNF-4alpha) were investigated in sedentary rats, were investigated. PMID: 20938723
  10. Analysis of gene expression profile induced by hepatocyte nuclear factor 4alpha in hepatoma cells using an oligonucleotide microarray PMID: 11834723

  15. spermine significantly enhanced the interaction between HNF4alpha and full-length DRIP205 in an AF-2, NR-box-dependent manner. Spermine enhanced the interaction of DRIP205 with the VDR , but decreased the interaction of both HNF4alpha and VDR with GRIP1 PMID: 12089346
  16. Results show that CREB and HNF4alpha bind the CPT promoter, that PGC-1 is involved in liver carnitine palmitoyltransferase I (CPT) gene activation by cylic AMP, and that PGC-1 acts to coordinate the process of metabolic adaptation in the liver. PMID: 12107181
  17. These findings suggest that fatty acids are endogenous ligands for HNF4 alpha and establish a framework for understanding how HNF4 alpha activity is enhanced by ligand binding and diminished by MODY1 mutations. PMID: 12193589
  18. Data show that the N-terminal activation function (AF)-1 of the hepatocyte nuclear factor (HNF)4alpha1 isoform has significant activity, but the HNF4alpha7 isoform has no measurable AF-1, implying major functional differences between the isoforms. PMID: 12205093
