PHD finger protein 2
This gene encodes a protein which contains a zinc finger-like PHD (plant homeodomain) finger, distinct from other classes of zinc finger motifs, and a hydrophobic and highly conserved domain. The PHD finger shows the typical Cys4-His-Cys3 arrangement. PHD finger genes are thought to belong to a diverse group of transcriptional regulators possibly affecting eukaryotic gene expression by influencing chromatin structure.

PHF2 and PHF8 belong to a subfamily of histone demethylases that also possess a PHD domain-dependent di-/trimethylated histone 3 lysine 4 (H3K4me2/3) binding activity and are known to be enriched in the nucleolus.

AIM: This study examined the prognostic significance of candidate tumor suppressor genes (TSGs) PHD finger protein-2 (PHF2), Fanconi anaemia complementation group C (FANCC) and human homologue of Drosophila patched gene (PTCH1), in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) treated primarily with surgery, or surgery followed by adjuvant radiotherapy.

Differential association of alterations in FANCC and PTCH1 with that of PHF2, XPA and two breast cancer susceptibility genes (BRCA1/BRCA2) in the two age groups suggests differences in their molecular pathogenesis.
