The NKX2-5 (NKX2.5) gene is transcribed to yield mRNA and the mRNA is translated to yield NKX2-5 protein (inferred from mouse homologs). In cardiac progenitors, NKX2-5 is initially activated by MESP1 (inferred from mouse homologs) and then, as expression of MESP1 is terminated, NKX2-5 becomes regulated by GATA4 (inferred from mouse homologs). NKX2-5 is also directly activated by SMAD1:SMAD4, which may result from BMP signaling (inferred from mouse homologs). In the second heart field, MEF2C binds the promoter of the NKX2-5 gene and mediates binding of NKX2-5 to its own promoter (inferred from mouse homologs). TBX20 binds the cardiac enhancer of the NKX2-5 gene and activates transcription. GATA4 and NKX2-5 regulate each other's expression during cardiogenesis.
