Transcription factor GATA-6, also known as GATA-binding factor 6 (GATA6), is protein that in humans is encoded by the GATA6 gene.[1] The gene product preferentially binds (A/T/C)GAT(A/T)(A) of the consensus binding sequence.[2]

Clinical significance

Mutations in the gene have been linked with pancreatic agenesis and congenital heart defects.[3]
