ID:GBX2_MOUSE DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Homeobox protein GBX-2; AltName: Full=Gastrulation and brain-specific homeobox protein 2; AltName: Full=Stimulated by retinoic acid gene 7 protein; FUNCTION: May act as a transcription factor for cell pluripotency and differentiation in the embryo. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus (Probable). TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Expressed in adult brain, spleen and female genital tract. No expression in heart, liver, lung, kidney, or testis. DEVELOPMENTAL STAGE: Expressed during gastrulation in the three primitive germ layers and in the pharyngeal arches. In later stages, expressed in the developing nervous system, midbrain/ hindbrain boundary, cerebellum anlage, certain rhombomeres, regions of the spinal cord, and in the developing dorsal thalamus and corpus striatum. SIMILARITY: Contains 1 homeobox DNA-binding domain.
The RNAfold program from the Vienna RNA Package is used to perform the secondary structure predictions and folding calculations. The estimated folding energy is in kcal/mol. The more negative the energy, the more secondary structure the RNA is likely to have.
ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on P48031
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.
Orthologous Genes in Other Species
Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
