Summaries for TBX15 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TBX15 Gene

  • This gene belongs to the T-box family of genes, which encode a phylogenetically conserved family of transcription factors that regulate a variety of developmental processes. All these genes contain a common T-box DNA-binding domain. Mutations in this gene are associated with Cousin syndrome.[provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009]

GeneCards Summary for TBX15 Gene

TBX15 (T-Box 15) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TBX15 include cousin syndrome and acromegaloid facial appearance syndrome. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and protein heterodimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is TBX20.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TBX15 Gene

  • Cousin syndrome (COUSS) [MIM:260660]: Defined as pelviscapular dysplasia with epiphyseal abnormalities, congenital dwarfism and facial dysmorphy (frontal bossing, hypertelorism, narrow palpebral fissures, deep set globes, strabismus, low-set posteriory rotated and unusually formed external ears, dysplasia of conchae, small chin, short neck with redundant skin folds, and a low hairline). Intelligence may vary from normal to moderately impaired. Radiographic features comprise aplasia of the body of the scapula, hypoplasia of the iliac bone, humeroradial synosthosis, dislocation of the femoral heads, and moderate brachydactyly. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19068278}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
