TOX high mobility group box family member 3, also known as TOX3, is a human gene.cite web | title = Entrez Gene: TOX high mobility group box family member 3| url = http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez?Db=gene&Cmd=ShowDetailView&TermToSearch=27324 | accessdate = ] cite journal | author = O'Flaherty E, Kaye J | title = TOX defines a conserved subfamily of HMG-box proteins | journal = BMC Genomics | volume = 4 | issue = 1 | pages = 13 | year = 2003 | month = April | pmid = 12697058 | pmc = 155677 | doi = | url = http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2164/4/13 | issn = ]

The protein encoded by this gene is a member of a subfamily of transcription factors that also includes TOX, TOX2, and TOX4 that share almost identical HMG-box DNA-binding domains which function to modify chromatin structure.
