Lua error in Module:Infobox_gene at line 43: attempt to index field 'wikibase' (a nil value). Homeobox protein Hox-B2 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the HOXB2 gene.[1][2][3]

Function

This gene is a member of the Antp homeobox family and encodes a nuclear protein with a homeobox DNA-binding domain. It is included in a cluster of homeobox B genes located on chromosome 17. The encoded protein functions as a sequence-specific transcription factor that is involved in development. Increased expression of this gene is associated with pancreatic cancer.[3]
