Previous GeneCards Identifiers for TTF2 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the SWI2/SNF2 family of proteins, which play a critical role in altering protein-DNA interactions. The encoded protein has been shown to have dsDNA-dependent ATPase activity and RNA polymerase II termination activity. This protein interacts with cell division cycle 5-like, associates with human splicing complexes, and plays a role in pre-mRNA splicing. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for TTF2 Gene
TTF2 (Transcription Termination Factor 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TTF2 include Cornea Plana and Axenfeld-Rieger Syndrome. Among its related pathways are Human Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) signaling pathway and Aldosterone synthesis and secretion. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include hydrolase activity and DNA-dependent ATPase activity. An important paralog of this gene is HLTF.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for TTF2 Gene
DsDNA-dependent ATPase which acts as a transcription termination factor by coupling ATP hydrolysis with removal of RNA polymerase II from the DNA template. May contribute to mitotic transcription repression. May also be involved in pre-mRNA splicing.
