Summaries for HOXB2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for HOXB2 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the Antp homeobox family and encodes a nuclear protein with a homeobox DNA-binding domain. It is included in a cluster of homeobox B genes located on chromosome 17. The encoded protein functions as a sequence-specific transcription factor that is involved in development. Increased expression of this gene is associated with pancreatic cancer. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
