External Ids for CBFA2T3 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the myeloid translocation gene family which interact with DNA-bound transcription factors and recruit a range of corepressors to facilitate transcriptional repression. The t(16;21)(q24;q22) translocation is one of the less common karyotypic abnormalities in acute myeloid leukemia. The translocation produces a chimeric gene made up of the 5'-region of the runt-related transcription factor 1 gene fused to the 3'-region of this gene. This gene is also a putative breast tumor suppressor. Alternative splicing results in transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2010]
GeneCards Summary for CBFA2T3 Gene
CBFA2T3 (Core-Binding Factor, Runt Domain, Alpha Subunit 2; Translocated To, 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CBFA2T3 include acute megakaryoblastic leukemia without down syndrome and myeloid leukemia. Among its related pathways are ErbB4 signaling events. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and chromatin binding. An important paralog of this gene is RUNX1T1.
