Summaries for RHOXF2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RHOXF2 Gene

  • This gene, which encodes a transcriptional repressor, is one of two paralogous X-linked homeobox-containing genes and is highly expressed in a variety of cancers. In addition, the encoded protein associates with the cell membrane and with microtubules, and is concentrated at the leading edge of migratory cells. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2015]
