Homeobox protein NOBOX, also known as newborn ovary homeobox protein, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the NOBOX gene.[1][2][3]

Contents

Function

NOBOX is a homeobox gene that is preferentially expressed in oocytes. In mice, it is essential for folliculogenesis and regulation of oocyte-specific genes.[3]

Clinical significance

A mutation in the NOBOX gene is associated with premature ovarian failure.[4]
