Entrez Gene Summary for LMO4 Gene

  • This gene encodes a cysteine-rich protein that contains two LIM domains but lacks a DNA-binding homeodomain. The encoded protein may play a role as a transcriptional regulator or as an oncogene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2008]

GeneCards Summary for LMO4 Gene

LMO4 (LIM Domain Only 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with LMO4 include acute t cell leukemia and breast cancer. Among its related pathways are IL6-mediated signaling events. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is LMO2.
