Summaries for NKX3-2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NKX3-2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the NK family of homeobox-containing proteins. The encoded protein may play a role in skeletal development. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for NKX3-2 Gene

NKX3-2 (NK3 Homeobox 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NKX3-2 include spondylo-megaepiphyseal-metaphyseal dysplasia and bone osteosarcoma. Among its related pathways are Endochondral Ossification. GO annotations related to this gene include RNA polymerase II core promoter proximal region sequence-specific DNA binding and transcriptional repressor activity, RNA polymerase II core promoter proximal region sequence-specific binding. An important paralog of this gene is DLX5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NKX3-2 Gene

  • Transcriptional repressor that acts as a negative regulator of chondrocyte maturation. PLays a role in distal stomach development; required for proper antral-pyloric morphogenesis and development of antral-type epithelium. In concert with GSC, defines the structural components of the middle ear; required for tympanic ring and gonium development and in the regulation of the width of the malleus (By similarity).
