Previous GeneCards Identifiers for GATAD2B Gene
This gene encodes a zinc finger protein transcriptional repressor. The encoded protein is part of the methyl-CpG-binding protein-1 complex, which represses gene expression by deacetylating methylated nucleosomes. Mutations in this gene are linked to intellectual disability and dysmorphic features associated with mental retardation. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2016]
GeneCards Summary for GATAD2B Gene
GATAD2B (GATA Zinc Finger Domain Containing 2B) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GATAD2B include Mental Retardation, Autosomal Dominant 18 and Intellectual Disability. Among its related pathways are Chromatin organization and Activated PKN1 stimulates transcription of AR (androgen receptor) regulated genes KLK2 and KLK3. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and RNA polymerase II core promoter proximal region sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is GATAD2A.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GATAD2B Gene
Transcriptional repressor. Enhances MBD2-mediated repression. Efficient repression requires the presence of GATAD2A. Targets MBD3 to discrete loci in the nucleus. May play a role in synapse development.
