Homeobox protein MSX-2

Gene

MSX2

Organism
Homo sapiens (Human)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Acts as a transcriptional regulator in bone development. Represses the ALPL promoter activity and antogonizes the stimulatory effect of DLX5 on ALPL expression during osteoblast differentiation. Probable morphogenetic role. May play a role in limb-pattern formation. In osteoblasts, suppresses transcription driven by the osteocalcin FGF response element (OCFRE). Binds to the homeodomain-response element of the ALPL promoter.1 Publication

Involvement in diseasei

Parietal foramina 1 (PFM1)2 Publications
The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
Disease descriptionAutosomal dominant disease characterized by oval defects of the parietal bones caused by deficient ossification around the parietal notch, which is normally obliterated during the fifth fetal month.

Parietal foramina with cleidocranial dysplasia (PFMCCD)1 Publication
The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
Disease descriptionCombines skull defects in the form of enlarged parietal foramina and deficient ossification of the clavicles.
See also OMIM:168550
Craniosynostosis 2 (CRS2)3 Publications
The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
Disease descriptionA primary abnormality of skull growth involving premature fusion of one or more cranial sutures. The growth velocity of the skull often cannot match that of the developing brain resulting in an abnormal head shape and, in some cases, increased intracranial pressure, which must be treated promptly to avoid permanent neurodevelopmental disability. CRS2 is characterized by either fronto-orbital recession, or frontal bossing, or turribrachycephaly, or cloverleaf skull. Associated features include severe headache, high incidence of visual problems (myopia or hyperopia), and short first metatarsals. Intelligence is normal.
