摘 要:

GATA 基因家族是一类含有锌指结构域的转录因子,因特异性地结合共同的核苷酸序列A/T(GATA)A/G 而得名。该家族在动物界广泛分布,其功能主要涉及胚层分化、器官发育和功能维持等方面。现对GATA 家族的基本信息、结构和分类进行简介,梳理近年来GATA 家族成员在无脊椎动物中的研究进展,并对未来的研究方向进行展望。

The GATA family are transcription factors containing one or two zinc-finger DNA-binding domains. They are so-called because they bind to the consensus DNA sequence A/T(GATA)A/G. They have been found throughout the animal kingdom, and have been shown to play critical roles in germ layer differentiation, organ development and function maintenance. This article briefly introduces the basic information, structure and classification of the GATA family, summarizes the recent research progress of GATA family members in invertebrate, and finally looks forward to the future research directions.
