GeneCards Summary for GSX2 Gene
GSX2 (GS Homeobox 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GSX2 include Diencephalic-Mesencephalic Junction Dysplasia Syndrome 2 and Diencephalic-Mesencephalic Junction Dysplasia. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is HOXA2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for GSX2 Gene
Transcription factor that binds 5'-CNAATTAG-3' DNA sequence and regulates the expression of numerous genes including genes important for brain development (PubMed:31412107). During telencephalic development, causes ventralization of pallial progenitors and, depending on the developmental stage, specifies different neuronal fates. At early stages, necessary and sufficient to correctly specify the ventral lateral ganglionic eminence (LGE) and its major derivatives, the striatal projection neurons. At later stages, may specify LGE progenitors toward dorsal LGE fates, including olfactory bulb interneurons (By similarity).
