Summaries for NR4A2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NR4A2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the steroid-thyroid hormone-retinoid receptor superfamily. The encoded protein may act as a transcription factor. Mutations in this gene have been associated with disorders related to dopaminergic dysfunction, including Parkinson disease, schizophernia, and manic depression. Misregulation of this gene may be associated with rheumatoid arthritis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described, but their biological validity has not been determined.

GeneCards Summary for NR4A2 Gene

NR4A2 (Nuclear Receptor Subfamily 4 Group A Member 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NR4A2 include acid-labile subunit, deficiency of and parkinson disease, late-onset. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and Neural Stem Cell Differentiation Pathways and Lineage-specific Markers. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and protein heterodimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is NR1H3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NR4A2 Gene

  • Transcriptional regulator which is important for the differentiation and maintenance of meso-diencephalic dopaminergic (mdDA) neurons during development. It is crucial for expression of a set of genes such as SLC6A3, SLC18A2, TH and DRD2 which are essential for development of mdDA neurons (By similarity).
