Summaries for OTP Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for OTP Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the homeodomain (HD) family. HD family proteins are helix-turn-helix transcription factors that play key roles in the specification of cell fates. This protein may function during brain development. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for OTP Gene

OTP (Orthopedia Homeobox) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with OTP include skull base meningioma. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and transcription regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is PHOX2B.
