Mesoderm posterior 2

Mesp2, mesoderm posterior 2
This gene encodes a member of the bHLH family of transcription factors and plays a key role in defining the rostrocaudal patterning of somites via interactions with multiple Notch signaling pathways. This gene is expressed in the anterior presomitic mesoderm and is downregulated immediately after the formation of segmented somites. This gene also plays a role in the formation of epithelial somitic mesoderm and cardiac mesoderm. Mutations in the MESP2 gene cause autosomal recessive spondylocostal dystosis 2 (SCD02).

Compound heterozygous mutations in RIPPLY2 associated with vertebral segmentation defects.
Duncan et al., Australia. In Hum Mol Genet, Apr 2015

Huang et al., Nanchang, China. In Bmc Genomics, Dec 2014
By leveraging a human protein-protein interaction network, we identified two putative candidate causal genes TGFB3 and DAB2IP and the known regulators MESP1 and MESP2 as responsible for the variation in rib number and identified the potential underlying molecular mechanisms.
Autosomal dominant spondylocostal dysostosis is caused by mutation in TBX6.
Dunwoodie et al., Sydney, Australia. In Hum Mol Genet, 2013
Over the past decade, the genetic basis of several forms of autosomal recessive SCD cases has been solved with the identification of four causative genes (DLL3, MESP2, LFNG and HES7).
Brothers with hypospadias, vertebral segmentation defects, and intellectual disability: new syndrome?
Turnpenny et al., Lucknow, India. In Am J Med Genet A, 2012
Results of cytogenetic and molecular genetic tests performed, including routine karyotype, MLPA (multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification) for common microdeletions and subtelomeric copy number variants, microarray-CGH analysis, and sequencing of four Notch signaling pathway genes (DLL3, MESP2, LFNG, and HES7), were all normal.
Tetrasomy 15q25.2→qter identified with SNP microarray in a patient with multiple anomalies including complex cardiovascular malformation.
Hopkin et al., Cincinnati, United States. In Am J Med Genet A, 2012
We propose overexpression of three genes, ADAMTSL3, MESP1, and MESP2 as a potential mechanism for cardiac and vessel malformations associated with tetrasomy 15q.
Mutation analysis of MESP2, HES7 and DUSP6 gene exons in patients with congenital scoliosis.
Qiu et al., Nanjing, China. In Stud Health Technol Inform, 2011
MESP2, HES7 and DUSP6 genes may not be involved in the etiopathogenesis of sporadic and non-syndromic CS in Chinese Han population.
Identification of genes for bone mineral density variation by computational disease gene identification strategy.
Huang et al., Wuhan, China. In J Bone Miner Metab, 2011
Prediction of transcription factor binding suggested that the minor allele G of rs10178256 might abolish the binding of MESP1 and MESP2 which play vital roles in bone homeostasis, whereas the minor allele G of rs6214 might create an additional binding site for XBP1, a constitutive regulator of endoplasmic reticulum stress response.
Clinical and radiological distinction between spondylothoracic dysostosis (Lavy-Moseley syndrome) and spondylocostal dysostosis (Jarcho-Levin syndrome).
Cowles et al., New York City, United States. In Pediatr Radiol, 2011
In contrast, spondylothoracic dysostosis (STD), or Lavy-Moseley syndrome, results in more severe respiratory compromise, is largely linked to Puerto Rican cohorts and is thought to be associated to the MESP2 gene, also a Notch pathway gene.
The repression of Notch signaling occurs via the destabilization of mastermind-like 1 by Mesp2 and is essential for somitogenesis.
Saga et al., Mishima, Japan. In Development, 2011
Data demonstrate that Mesp2 is a novel component involved in the suppression of Notch target genes.
Spondylothoracic Dysostosis
Cornier, Seattle, United States. In Unknown Journal, 2010
MESP2 is the only gene known to be associated with spondylothoracic dysostosis.
The oscillation of Notch activation, but not its boundary, is required for somite border formation and rostral-caudal patterning within a somite.
Saga et al., Mishima, Japan. In Development, 2010
Data propose a novel function of Notch signaling, in which a progressive oscillating wave of Notch activity is translated into the rostral-caudal polarity of a somite by regulating Mesp2 expression in the anterior presomitic mesoderm.
Spondylocostal Dysostosis, Autosomal Recessive
(International Consortium for Vertebral Anomalies and Scoliosis) et al., Seattle, United States. In Unknown Journal, 2009

The role of Notch in patterning the human vertebral column.
Dunwoodie, Sydney, Australia. In Curr Opin Genet Dev, 2009
More specifically it describes that mutations in genes encoding Notch pathway components (DLL3, MESP2, LFNG and HES7) cause severe congenital vertebral defects in humans.
Functional importance of evolutionally conserved Tbx6 binding sites in the presomitic mesoderm-specific enhancer of Mesp2.
