Summaries for ESCO2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ESCO2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that may have acetyltransferase activity and may be required for the establishment of sister chromatid cohesion during the S phase of mitosis. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Roberts syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for ESCO2 Gene

ESCO2 (Establishment Of Sister Chromatid Cohesion N-Acetyltransferase 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ESCO2 include roberts syndrome and sc phocomelia syndrome. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and CDK-mediated phosphorylation and removal of Cdc6. GO annotations related to this gene include lysine N-acetyltransferase activity, acting on acetyl phosphate as donor. An important paralog of this gene is ESCO1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ESCO2 Gene

  • Acetyltransferase required for the establishment of sister chromatid cohesion. Couples the processes of cohesion and DNA replication to ensure that only sister chromatids become paired together. In contrast to the structural cohesins, the deposition and establishment factors are required only during the S phase. Acetylates the cohesin component SMC3.

ESCO2_HUMAN
  • Roberts syndrome (RBS) [MIM:268300]: Rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by pre- and postnatal growth retardation, microcephaly, bilateral cleft lip and palate, and mesomelic symmetric limb reduction. Severely affected infants may be stillborn or die shortly after birth. RBS chromosomes have a lack of cohesion involving the heterochromatic C-banding regions around centromeres and the distal portion of the long arm of the Y chromosome (known as premature centromere separation, heterochromatin repulsion or puffing, or RS effect). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15821733}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • SC phocomelia syndrome (SCPS) [MIM:269000]: Has a milder phenotype than RBS, with a lesser degree of symmetric limb reduction and additionally includes flexion contractures of various joints, midfacial hemangioma, hypoplastic cartilage of ears and nose, scant silvery-blond hair, and cloudy corneae. Although microcephaly is present, mental retardation may be mild and survival into adulthood is common. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:16380922}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
