Summaries for CECR2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CECR2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a bromodomain-containing protein that is involved in chromatin remodeling, and may additionally play a role in DNA damage response. The encoded protein functions as part of an ATP-dependent complex that is involved in neurulation. This gene is a candidate gene for Cat Eye Syndrome. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2014]

GeneCards Summary for CECR2 Gene

CECR2 (CECR2, Histone Acetyl-Lysine Reader) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CECR2 include Cat Eye Syndrome and Chromosome 22Q11.2 Microduplication Syndrome. An important paralog of this gene is BAZ2A.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CECR2 Gene

  • Part of the CERF (CECR2-containing-remodeling factor) complex, which facilitates the perturbation of chromatin structure in an ATP-dependent manner. May be involved through its interaction with LRPPRC in the integration of cytoskeletal network with vesicular trafficking, nucleocytosolic shuttling, transcription, chromosome remodeling and cytokinesis.

    1484 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    164213 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Part of the CECR2-containing remodeling factor (CERF) complex which contains CECR2 and SMARCA1. Interacts with acetylated lysine residues on histone H2A and H3 (in vitro). Interacts with LRPPRC.
    • Candidate gene for the Cat Eye Syndrome (CES), a developmental disorder associated with the duplication of a 2 Mb region of 22q11.2. Duplication usually takes in the form of a surpernumerary bisatellited isodicentric chromosome, resulting in four copies of the region (represents an inv dup(22)(q11)). CES is characterized clinically by the combination of coloboma of the iris and anal atresia with fistula, downslanting palpebral fissures, preauricular tags and/or pits, frequent occurrence of heart and renal malformations, and normal or near-normal mental development.
