Left-right determination factor 2

lefty2, EBAF, endometrial bleeding associated factor
This gene encodes a member of the TGF-beta family of proteins. The encoded protein is secreted and plays a role in left-right asymmetry determination of organ systems during development. The protein may also play a role in endometrial bleeding. Mutations in this gene have been associated with left-right axis malformations, particularly in the heart and lungs. Some types of infertility have been associated with dysregulated expression of this gene in the endometrium. Alternative processing of this protein can yield three different products. This gene is closely linked to both a related family member and a related pseudogene. Alternate splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants.

Microarray Analyses Reveal Marked Differences in Growth Factor and Receptor Expression Between 8-Cell Human Embryos and Pluripotent Stem Cells.
Kiessling et al., Athens, Greece. In Stem Cells Dev, Feb 2016
Forty-four gene elements were underdetected on the 8C arrays, including 11 at least 80-fold under the pluripotent cells: two cytokines (IFITM1, TNFRSF8), five TGFBs (BMP7, LEFTY1, LEFTY2, TDGF1, TDGF3), two FGFs (FGF2, FGF receptor 1), plus ING5, and WNT6.

Cases and controls were genotyped for 20 SNPs across 13 candidate genes for NSCL/P (PAX7, ABCA4-ARHGAP29, IRF6, MSX1, PITX2, 8q24, FOXE1, TGFB3 and MAFB) and left-right body patterning (LEFTY1, LEFTY2, ISL1 and SNAI1).

Yost et al., Salt Lake City, United States. In Dev Biol, 2014
When FGF signaling is inhibited during mid-somitogenesis, asymmetrically expressed LPM markers southpaw and lefty2 are not affected.
Orphan G-protein coupled receptor 22 (Gpr22) regulates cilia length and structure in the zebrafish Kupffer's vesicle.
Tylzanowski et al., Leuven, Belgium. In Plos One, 2013
Specifically, defective LR patterning included randomization of the left-specific lateral plate mesodermal genes (LPM) (lefty1, lefty2, southpaw and pitx2a), resulting in randomized cardiac looping.
Differential diffusivity of Nodal and Lefty underlies a reaction-diffusion patterning system.
Schier et al., Cambridge, United States. In Science, 2012
results indicate that differential diffusivity is the major determinant of the differences in Nodal/Lefty range and provide biophysical support for reaction-diffusion models of activator/inhibitor-mediated patterning
LEFTY2 expression and localization in rat oviduct during early pregnancy.
Miceli et al., San Miguel de Tucumán, Argentina. In Zygote, 2012
LEFTY2 is expressed at a high level just before the embryos pass to the uterus; its biological effect might be relevant and significant for the preimplantation stage of embryo development in the oviduct.
The Nodal inhibitor Lefty is negatively modulated by the microRNA miR-302 in human embryonic stem cells.
Menendez et al., Armilla, Spain. In Faseb J, 2011
Findings suggest that Lefty2 is negatively modulated by miR-302s in hESCs, which plays an important role in maintaining the balance between pluripotency and germ layer specification.
Isolation, characterization, and function of EBAF/LEFTY B: role in infertility.
Tabibzadeh, Stony Brook, United States. In Ann N Y Acad Sci, 2011
Findings show that during embryonic development, EBAF/LEFTY B plays important roles in decidualization and embryo implantation.

Cited2 controls left-right patterning and heart development through a Nodal-Pitx2c pathway.
Bhattacharya et al., Oxford, United Kingdom. In Nat Genet, 2004
Cited2(-/-) mice lack expression of the Nodal target genes Pitx2c, Nodal and Ebaf in the left lateral plate mesoderm, where they are required for establishing laterality and cardiovascular development.

Hashimoto, Ikoma, Japan. In Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci, 2002
Recessive spiral1 and spiral2 mutants show right-handed helical growth in roots, hypocotyls, petioles and petals; semi-dominant lefty1 and lefty2 mutants show opposite left-handed growth in these organs.

In most Gdf1-/- embryos, the expression of Ebaf (formerly lefty-1) in the left side of the floor plate and Leftb (formerly lefty-2), nodal and Pitx2 in the left lateral plate mesoderm was absent, suggesting that Gdf1 acts upstream of these genes either directly or indirectly to activate their expression.
