Entrez Gene Summary for DIP2B Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the disco-interacting protein homolog 2 protein family. The encoded protein contains a binding site for the transcriptional regulator DNA methyltransferase 1 associated protein 1 as well as AMP-binding sites. The presence of these sites suggests that the encoded protein may participate in DNA methylation. This gene is located near a folate-sensitive fragile site, and CGG-repeat expansion in the promoter of this gene which affects transcription has been detected in individuals containing this fragile site on chromosome 12.

mRNA Expression by UniProt/SwissProt for DIP2B Gene

Tissue specificity: Moderately expressed in adult brain, placenta, skeletal muscle, heart, kidney, pancreas, lung, spleen and colon. Expression was weaker in adult liver, kidney, spleen, and ovary, and in fetal brain and liver. In the brain, it is expressed in the cerebral cortex; the frontal, parietal, occipital and temporal lobes; the paracentral gyrus; the pons; the corpus callosum and the hippocampus. Highest expression levels in the brain were found in the cerebral cortex and the frontal and parietal lobes.
