Summaries for OTX2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for OTX2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the bicoid subfamily of homeodomain-containing transcription factors. The encoded protein acts as a transcription factor and plays a role in brain, craniofacial, and sensory organ development. The encoded protein also influences the proliferation and differentiation of dopaminergic neuronal progenitor cells during mitosis. Mutations in this gene cause syndromic microphthalmia 5 (MCOPS5) and combined pituitary hormone deficiency 6 (CPHD6). This gene is also suspected of having an oncogenic role in medulloblastoma. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms. Pseudogenes of this gene are known to exist on chromosomes two and nine. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2012]

GeneCards Summary for OTX2 Gene

OTX2 (Orthodenticle Homeobox 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with OTX2 include microphthalmia, syndromic 5 and pituitary hormone deficiency, combined, 6. Among its related pathways are TP53 network and Embryonic and Induced Pluripotent 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 PITX3.

  • Microphthalmia, syndromic, 5 (MCOPS5) [MIM:610125]: Patients manifest unilateral or bilateral microphthalmia/clinical anophthalmia and variable additional features including pituitary dysfunction, coloboma, microcornea, cataract, retinal dystrophy, hypoplasia or agenesis of the optic nerve, agenesis of the corpus callosum, developmental delay, joint laxity, hypotonia, and seizures. Microphthalmia is 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. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15846561, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20396904, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22577225, ECO:0000269 PubMed:24167467}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Pituitary hormone deficiency, combined, 6 (CPHD6) [MIM:613986]: Combined pituitary hormone deficiency is defined as the impaired production of growth hormone and one or more of the other five anterior pituitary hormones. CPHD6 patients manifest neonatal hypoglycemia, and deficiencies of growth hormone, thyroid-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, follicle stimulating hormone and adrenocorticotropic hormone. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:18728160}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Retinal dystrophy, early-onset, with or without pituitary dysfunction (RDEOP) [MIM:610125]: An autosomal dominant ocular disease characterized by pattern dystrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium, and photoreceptor degeneration. Mild developmental anomalies include optic nerve head dysplasia, microcornea, and Rathkes cleft cyst. Some patients manifest pituary dysfunction. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19956411, ECO:0000269 PubMed:25293953}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
