Summaries for CAMTA2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CAMTA2 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the calmodulin-binding transcription activator protein family. Members of this family share a common domain structure that consists of a transcription activation domain, a DNA-binding domain, and a calmodulin-binding domain. The encoded protein may be a transcriptional coactivator of genes involved in cardiac growth. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2010]

GeneCards Summary for CAMTA2 Gene

CAMTA2 (Calmodulin Binding Transcription Activator 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CAMTA2 include Miller-Dieker Lissencephaly Syndrome and Neuroblastoma. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include chromatin binding and histone deacetylase binding. An important paralog of this gene is CAMTA1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CAMTA2 Gene
