Entrez Gene Summary for CNBP Gene

  • This gene encodes a nucleic-acid binding protein with seven zinc-finger domains. The protein has a preference for binding single stranded DNA and RNA. The protein functions in cap-independent translation of ornithine decarboxylase mRNA, and may also function in sterol-mediated transcriptional regulation. A CCTG expansion in the first intron of this gene results in myotonic dystrophy type 2. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

  • Dystrophia myotonica 2 (DM2) [MIM:602668]: A multisystem disease characterized by the association of proximal muscle weakness with myotonia, cardiac manifestations and cataract. Additional features can include hyperhidrosis, testicular atrophy, insulin resistance and diabetes and central nervous system anomalies in rare cases. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. The causative mutation is a CCTG expansion (mean approximately 5000 repeats) located in intron 1 of the CNBP gene.
