Summaries for NDRG2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NDRG2 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the N-myc downregulated gene family which belongs to the alpha/beta hydrolase superfamily. The protein encoded by this gene is a cytoplasmic protein that may play a role in neurite outgrowth. This gene may be involved in glioblastoma carcinogenesis. Several alternatively spliced transcript variants of this gene have been described, but the full-length nature of some of these variants has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for NDRG2 Gene

NDRG2 (NDRG Family Member 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NDRG2 include Glioblastoma and Transitional Papilloma. Among its related pathways are Apoptosis and Autophagy and PI3K / Akt Signaling. An important paralog of this gene is NDRG4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NDRG2 Gene

  • Contributes to the regulation of the Wnt signaling pathway. Down-regulates CTNNB1-mediated transcriptional activation of target genes, such as CCND1, and may thereby act as tumor suppressor. May be involved in dendritic cell and neuron differentiation.

Q9UN36-NDRG2_HUMAN
Tissue specificity: Highly expressed in brain, heart, skeletal muscle and salivary gland, and moderately in kidney and liver. Expressed in dendritic cells, but not in other blood cells. Expression levels are low in pancreatic and liver cancer tissues; absent in meningioma. Expressed in low-grade gliomas but present at low levels in glioblastoma. Isoform 1 and isoform 2 are present in brain neurons and up-regulated in Alzheimer disease (at protein level).
