Entrez Gene Summary for MAB21L2 Gene

  • This gene is similar to the C. elegans MAB-21 cell fate-determining gene, a downstream target of transforming growth factor-beta signaling. It is thought that this gene may be involved in neural development. The protein encoded by this gene is primarily nuclear, although some cytoplasmic localization has been observed.

Disorders for MAB21L2 Gene


  • Microphthalmia, syndromic, 14 (MCOPS14) [MIM:615877]: A form of microphthalmia, a disorder of eye formation, ranging from small size of a single eye to complete bilateral absence of ocular tissues (anophthalmia). In many cases, microphthalmia/anophthalmia occurs in association with syndromes that include non-ocular abnormalities. MCOPS14 patients exhibit bilateral colobomatous microphthalmia or bilateral anophthalmia. Intellectual disability and rhizomelic skeletal dysplasia is present in some affected individuals. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:24906020}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
