Summaries for ZMYM2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ZMYM2 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a zinc finger protein that may act as a transcription factor. The encoded protein may be part of a BHC histone deacetylase complex. Translocation of this gene with the fibroblast growth factor receptor-1 gene (FGFR1) results in a fusion gene, which may be a cause of stem cell leukemia lymphoma syndrome (SCLL). Several transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2010]

GeneCards Summary for ZMYM2 Gene

ZMYM2 (Zinc Finger MYM-Type Containing 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ZMYM2 include 8P11 Myeloproliferative Syndrome and Bone Marrow Cancer. Among its related pathways are FGFR1 mutant receptor activation and HIV Life Cycle. GO annotations related to this gene include ubiquitin conjugating enzyme binding. An important paralog of this gene is ZMYM3.
