Entrez Gene Summary for TLX2 Gene

  • This gene is a member of an orphan homeobox-containing transcription factor family. Studies of the mouse ortholog have shown that the encoded protein is crucial for the development of the enteric nervous system; in humans, loss-of-function may play a role in tumorigenesis of gastrointestinal stromal tumors.

GeneCards Summary for TLX2 Gene

TLX2 (T-Cell Leukemia Homeobox 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TLX2 include t-cell leukemia and megacolon. Among its related pathways are Neural Crest Differentiation and ALK1 signaling events. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is NKX2-5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TLX2 Gene

  • Transcription activator that binds DNA elements with the consensus sequence 5-CGGTAATTGG-3. Binds DNA via its homeobox. Required for normal cell death of enteric neurons in the gastrointestinal tract. Required for normal development of the enteric nervous system, and for proper development of normal motility of the gastrointestinal tract (By similarity).
