Entrez Gene Summary for ZMIZ2 Gene

  • ZMIZ2 and ZMIZ1 (MIM 607159) are members of a PIAS (see MIM 603566)-like family of proteins that interact with nuclear hormone receptors. ZMIZ2 interacts with androgen receptor (AR; MIM 313700) and enhances AR-mediated transcription (Huang et al., 2005 [PubMed 16051670]).[supplied by OMIM, May 2010]

GeneCards Summary for ZMIZ2 Gene

ZMIZ2 (Zinc Finger, MIZ-Type Containing 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ZMIZ2 include blepharitis. Among its related pathways are Regulation of Androgen receptor activity. GO annotations related to this gene include ligand-dependent nuclear receptor transcription coactivator activity. An important paralog of this gene is ZMIZ1.
