Gene: MECP2 (methyl-CpG binding protein 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MECP2
Name: methyl-CpG binding protein 2
Description: Exhibits several functions, including double-stranded methylated DNA binding activity; protein N-terminus binding activity; and transcription corepressor activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of blood vessel endothelial cell migration; positive regulation of microtubule nucleation; and regulation of nucleobase-containing compound metabolic process. Localizes to centrosome; heterochromatin; and nucleoplasm. Implicated in Rett syndrome; X-linked intellectual disability-psychosis-macroorchidism syndrome; autistic disorder; and syndromic X-linked intellectual disability Lubs type.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
