Gene: MEIS2 (Meis homeobox 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MEIS2
Name: Meis homeobox 2
Description: This gene encodes a homeobox protein belonging to the TALE ('three amino acid loop extension') family of homeodomain-containing proteins. TALE homeobox proteins are highly conserved transcription regulators, and several members have been shown to be essential contributors to developmental programs. Multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
