Summaries for DEDD2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DEDD2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a nuclear-localized protein containing a death effector domain (DED). The encoded protein may regulate the trafficking of caspases and other proteins into the nucleus during death receptor-induced apoptosis. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2012]

GeneCards Summary for DEDD2 Gene

DEDD2 (Death Effector Domain Containing 2) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include receptor signaling complex scaffold activity. An important paralog of this gene is DEDD.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DEDD2 Gene

  • May play a critical role in death receptor-induced apoptosis and may target CASP8 and CASP10 to the nucleus. May regulate degradation of intermediate filaments during apoptosis. May play a role in the general transcription machinery in the nucleus and might be an important regulator of the activity of GTF3C3

mRNA Expression by UniProt/SwissProt for DEDD2 Gene

Tissue specificity: Expressed in most tissues. High levels were found in liver, kidney, heart, ovary, spleen, testes, skeletal muscle and peripheral blood leukocytes. Expression was absent or low in colon and small intestine. Expression is relatively high in the tumor cell lines chronic myologenous leukemia K-562 and the colorectal adenocarcinoma SW480. Expression is moderate in the cervical carcinoma HeLa, the Burkitts lymphoma Raji, the lung carcinoma A-549, and the melanoma G-361. In contrast, two leukemia cell lines, HL-60 (promyelocytic leukemia) and MOLT-4 (lymphoblastic leukemia), show relatively low levels.
