The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the CSRNP family of nuclear proteins that share conserved regions, including cysteine- and serine- rich regions, a basic domain, a transcriptional activation domain, and bind the sequence 'AGAGTG', thus have the hallmark of transcription factors. Studies in mice suggest that these genes may have redundant functions. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]
GeneCards Summary for CSRNP2 Gene
CSRNP2 (Cysteine And Serine Rich Nuclear Protein 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CSRNP2 include Retinitis Pigmentosa 4. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include DNA binding transcription factor activity and transcriptional activator activity, RNA polymerase II transcription regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is CSRNP3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CSRNP2 Gene
Binds to the consensus sequence 5-AGAGTG-3 and has transcriptional activator activity (By similarity). May play a role in apoptosis.
