BCL11B BAF chromatin remodeling complex subunit BCL11B

Gene ID: 64919, updated on 5-Jan-2022
Gene type: protein coding
Also known as: ATL1; RIT1; CTIP2; IMD49; CTIP-2; IDDFSTA; SMARCM2; ZNF856B; ATL1-beta; ATL1-alpha; ATL1-delta; ATL1-gamma; hRIT1-alpha


This gene encodes a C2H2-type zinc finger protein and is closely related to BCL11A, a gene whose translocation may be associated with B-cell malignancies. Although the specific function of this gene has not been determined, the encoded protein is known to be a transcriptional repressor, and is regulated by the NURD nucleosome remodeling and histone deacetylase complex. Four alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2013]
