The first mRNA transcript isolated for this gene was part of an artificial chimera derived from two distinct gene transcripts and a primer used in the cloning process (see Genbank accession M29204). A positively charged amino terminus present only in the chimera was determined to bind GC-rich DNA, thus mistakenly thought to identify a transcription factor gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for GCFC2 Gene
GCFC2 (GC-Rich Sequence DNA-Binding Factor 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GCFC2 include Dyslexia and Reading Disorder. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and mRNA Splicing - Major Pathway. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include DNA-binding transcription factor activity and proximal promoter DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific. An important paralog of this gene is PAXBP1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for GCFC2 Gene
Factor that represses transcription. It binds to the GC-rich sequences (5'-GCGGGGC-3') present in the epidermal growth factor receptor, beta-actin, and calcium-dependent protease promoters. Involved in pre-mRNA splicing through regulating spliceosome C complex formation. May play a role during late-stage splicing events and turnover of excised inrons.
