Description…

The PITX2 protein is a member of the RIEG/PITX paired homeobox family, in the bicoid class of homeodomain proteins. PITX2 acts as a transcription factor, controls cell proliferation in a tissue-specific manner and is involved in morphogenesis. During embryonic development, PITX2 exerts a role in the expansion of muscle progenitors. Several alternatively spliced transcripts have been identified encoding different isoforms.
