Summaries for IGF2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for IGF2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the insulin family of polypeptide growth factors, which are involved in development and growth. It is an imprinted gene, expressed only from the paternal allele, and epigenetic changes at this locus are associated with Wilms tumour, Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome, rhabdomyosarcoma, and Silver-Russell syndrome. A read-through INS-IGF2 gene exists, whose 5' region overlaps the INS gene and the 3' region overlaps this gene. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2010]

GeneCards Summary for IGF2 Gene

IGF2 (Insulin Like Growth Factor 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with IGF2 include growth restriction, severe, with distinctive facies and isolated hemihyperplasia. Among its related pathways are Platelet activation, signaling and aggregation and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include growth factor activity and insulin receptor binding. An important paralog of this gene is IGF1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for IGF2 Gene

  • The insulin-like growth factors possess growth-promoting activity. In vitro, they are potent mitogens for cultured cells. IGF-II is influenced by placental lactogen and may play a role in fetal development.

  • Preptin undergoes glucose-mediated co-secretion with insulin, and acts as physiological amplifier of glucose-mediated insulin secretion. Exhibits osteogenic properties by increasing osteoblast mitogenic activity through phosphoactivation of MAPK1 and MAPK3.

  • Silver-Russell syndrome (SRS) [MIM:180860]: A clinically heterogeneous condition characterized by severe intrauterine growth retardation, poor postnatal growth, craniofacial features such as a triangular shaped face and a broad forehead, body asymmetry, and a variety of minor malformations. The phenotypic expression changes during childhood and adolescence, with the facial features and asymmetry usually becoming more subtle with age. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19066168}. Note=The gene represented in this entry is involved in disease pathogenesis. Most of the cases of Silver-Russell syndrome are caused by the epigenetic changes of DNA hypomethylation at the telomeric imprinting control region (ICR1) on chromosome 11p15, involving the H19 and IGF2 genes.
  • Growth restriction, severe, with distinctive facies (GRDF) [MIM:616489]: A disease characterized by severe prenatal and postnatal growth restriction, facial dysmorphism, and short stature in the presence of normal or slightly elevated growth hormone levels. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:26154720}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
