Summaries for PHOX2B Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PHOX2B Gene

  • The DNA-associated protein encoded by this gene is a member of the paired family of homeobox proteins localized to the nucleus. The protein functions as a transcription factor involved in the development of several major noradrenergic neuron populations and the determination of neurotransmitter phenotype. The gene product is linked to enhancement of second messenger-mediated activation of the dopamine beta-hydroylase, c-fos promoters and several enhancers, including cyclic amp-response element and serum-response element.

GeneCards Summary for PHOX2B Gene

PHOX2B (Paired-Like Homeobox 2b) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PHOX2B include neuroblastoma 2 and central hypoventilation syndrome, congenital. Among its related pathways are Neural Crest Differentiation and SIDS Susceptibility Pathways. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is PRRX2.

PHX2B_HUMAN
  • Congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS) [MIM:209880]: Rare disorder characterized by abnormal control of respiration in the absence of neuromuscular or lung disease, or an identifiable brain stem lesion. A deficiency in autonomic control of respiration results in inadequate or negligible ventilatory and arousal responses to hypercapnia and hypoxemia. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:12640453, ECO:0000269 PubMed:14566559, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15657873}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Neuroblastoma 2 (NBLST2) [MIM:613013]: A common neoplasm of early childhood arising from embryonic cells that form the primitive neural crest and give rise to the adrenal medulla and the sympathetic nervous system. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
