Short stature homeobox 2

Shox2, SHOT, OG12X, OG-12
This gene is a member of the homeobox family of genes that encode proteins containing a 60-amino acid residue motif that represents a DNA binding domain. Homeobox genes have been characterized extensively as transcriptional regulators involved in pattern formation in both invertebrate and vertebrate species. Several human genetic disorders are caused by aberrations in human homeobox genes. This locus represents a pseudoautosomal homeobox gene that is thought to be responsible for idiopathic short stature, and it is implicated in the short stature phenotype of Turner syndrome patients. This gene is considered to be a candidate gene for Cornelia de Lange syndrome. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2009] (from NCBI)

Field et al., Berlin, Germany. In Int J Oncol, 2012
A CE marked in vitro diagnostic test kit to quantify SHOX2 DNA methylation in bronchial aspirates was developed and characterized.
Dependence on the transcription factor Shox2 for specification of sensory neurons conveying discriminative touch.
Ernfors et al., Stockholm, Sweden. In Eur J Neurosci, 2011
These results show that Shox2 is required for specification of a subclass of TrkB(+) sensory neurons which convey the sensation of discriminative touch arising from stimuli of the skin.
SHOX2 DNA methylation is a biomarker for the diagnosis of lung cancer in plasma.
Dietrich et al., Mainz, Germany. In J Thorac Oncol, 2011
SHOX2 DNA methylation is associated with lung cancer.
Transcription factor short stature homeobox 2 is required for proper development of tropomyosin-related kinase B-expressing mechanosensory neurons.
Wang et al., Durham, United States. In J Neurosci, 2011
our findings identify Shox2 as an essential but not sufficient component of the transcription programs required in neural progenitor cells for the proper specification of subsets of TrkB-expressing touch/mechanosensory neurons.
