Gene: MECP2 (methyl-CpG binding protein 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MECP2
Name: methyl-CpG binding protein 2
RGD ID: 1349232
Description: Exhibits several functions, including double-stranded methylated DNA binding activity; protein N-terminus binding activity; and transcription corepressor activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of DNA methylation; positive regulation of microtubule nucleation; and regulation of gene expression. Localizes to centrosome; heterochromatin; and nucleoplasm. Implicated in Rett syndrome; X-linked intellectual disability-psychosis-macroorchidism syndrome; autistic disorder; severe congenital encephalopathy due to MECP2 mutation; and syndromic X-linked intellectual disability Lubs type.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
