Snail homolog 2

Slug, SNAI2, Snail2
This gene encodes a member of the Snail family of C2H2-type zinc finger transcription factors. The encoded protein acts as a transcriptional repressor that binds to E-box motifs and is also likely to repress E-cadherin transcription in breast carcinoma. This protein is involved in epithelial-mesenchymal transitions and has antiapoptotic activity. Mutations in this gene may be associated with sporatic cases of neural tube defects.

Gomez-Cambronero et al., Dayton, United States. In Mol Oncol, Jan 2016
UNASSIGNED: Slug (SNAI2) and Snail (SNAI1) are master regulatory transcription factors for organogenesis and wound healing, and they are involved in the epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) of cancer cells.
Regulation of Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition by E3 Ubiquitin Ligases and Deubiquitinase in Cancer.
Hayashi et al., Nagoya, Japan. In Curr Cancer Drug Targets, Dec 2015
One of the hallmarks of EMT is the diminished expression of E-cadherin and gain of mesenchymal traits, which are regulated by core EMT-inducing transcriptional factors (EMT-TFs), such as Snail/Slug, ZEB1/ZEB2, and Twist1.

Distinct EMT programs control normal mammary stem cells and tumour-initiating cells.
Weinberg et al., Cambridge, United States. In Nature, Oct 2015
Supporting this notion, we and others previously established that the Slug epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition-inducing transcription factor (EMT-TF), a member of the Snail family, serves as a master regulator of the gland-reconstituting activity of normal mammary stem cells, and that forced expression of Slug in collaboration with Sox9 in breast cancer cells can efficiently induce entrance into the TIC state.
