Gene: SHOX2 (short stature homeobox 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SHOX2
Name: short stature homeobox 2
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific. Predicted to be involved in heart development; nervous system development; and skeletal system development. Predicted to localize to nuclear chromatin. Implicated in lung cancer.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
