Summaries for BEX2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for BEX2 Gene

  • This gene belongs to the brain expressed X-linked gene family. The encoded protein interacts with the transcription factor LIM domain only 2 in a DNA-binding complex that recognizes the E-box element and promotes transcription. This gene has been found to be a tumor suppressor that is silenced in human glioma. In breast cancer cells, this gene product modulates apoptosis in response to estrogen and tamoxifen, and enhances the anti-proliferative effect of tamoxifen. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2009]

GeneCards Summary for BEX2 Gene

BEX2 (Brain Expressed X-Linked 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with BEX2 include breast cancer. Among its related pathways are p75(NTR)-mediated signaling. An important paralog of this gene is NGFRAP1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for BEX2 Gene

  • Regulator of mitochondrial apoptosis and G1 cell cycle in breast cancer. Protects the breast cancer cells against mitochondrial apoptosis and this effect is mediated through the modulation of BCL2 protein family, which involves the positive regulation of anti-apoptotic member BCL2 and the negative regulation of pro-apoptotic members BAD, BAK1 and PUMA. Required for the normal cell cycle progression during G1 in breast cancer cells through the regulation of CCND1 and CDKN1A. Regulates the level of PP2A regulatory subunit B and PP2A phosphatase activity.
