Summaries for RAI2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RAI2 Gene

  • Retinoic acid plays a critical role in development, cellular growth, and differentiation. The specific function of this retinoic acid-induced gene has not yet been determined but it may play a role in development. The chromosomal location of this gene designates it to be a candidate for diseases such as Nance-Horan syndrome, sensorineural deafness, non-specific X-linked mental retardation, oral-facial-digital syndrome, and Fried syndrome. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2010]

GeneCards Summary for RAI2 Gene

RAI2 (Retinoic Acid Induced 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RAI2 include fried syndrome and nance-horan syndrome.
