Summaries for ROBO2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ROBO2 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the ROBO family, part of the immunoglobulin superfamily of proteins that are highly conserved from fly to human. The encoded protein is a transmembrane receptor for the slit homolog 2 protein and functions in axon guidance and cell migration. Mutations in this gene are associated with vesicoureteral reflux, characterized by the backward flow of urine from the bladder into the ureters or the kidney. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2014]

GeneCards Summary for ROBO2 Gene

ROBO2 (Roundabout Guidance Receptor 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ROBO2 include Vesicoureteral Reflux 2 and Familial Vesicoureteral Reflux. Among its related pathways are Axon guidance and Signaling by Robo receptor. GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and axon guidance receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is IGDCC3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ROBO2 Gene

  • Receptor for SLIT2, and probably SLIT1, which are thought to act as molecular guidance cue in cellular migration, including axonal navigation at the ventral midline of the neural tube and projection of axons to different regions during neuronal development.

  • Note=A chromosomal aberration involving ROBO2 is a cause of multiple congenital abnormalities, including severe bilateral VUR with ureterovesical junction defects. Translocation t(Y;3)(p11;p12) with PCDH11Y. This translocation disrupts ROBO2 and produces dominant-negative ROBO2 proteins that abrogate SLIT-ROBO signaling in vitro.
  • Vesicoureteral reflux 2 (VUR2) [MIM:610878]: A disease belonging to the group of congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract. It is characterized by the reflux of urine from the bladder into the ureters and sometimes into the kidneys, and is a risk factor for urinary tract infections. Primary disease results from a developmental defect of the ureterovesical junction. In combination with intrarenal reflux, the resulting inflammatory reaction may result in renal injury or scarring, also called reflux nephropathy. Extensive renal scarring impairs renal function and may predispose patients to hypertension, proteinuria, renal insufficiency and end-stage renal disease. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17357069}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
