Gene: GCM2 (glial cells missing transcription factor 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GCM2
Name: glial cells missing transcription factor 2
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in cellular ion homeostasis; parathyroid gland development; and transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the nucleus. Implicated in hyperparathyroidism.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: chorion-specific transcription factor GCMb; GCM motif protein 2; GCMB; glial cells missing 2; glial cells missing homolog 2; glial cells missing homolog b; glide/gcm protein homolog; hGCMb; HRPT4
