InnateDB Annotation
Bcl11b, a transcription factor essential in T cell lineage commitment and maintenance, is specifically expressed in progenitors committed to the group 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2) lineage and is required for ILC2 development.
Bcl11b is a factor in the differentiation of group 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2s).
Bcl11b sustains the genetic and functional programs, as well as lineage fidelity, of mature type 2 innate lymphoid cells.
Entrez Gene
Summary This gene does not have any Entrez summary - the following is the summary from its human ortholog ENSG00000127152:
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. The specific function of this gene has not yet been determined. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants, which encode distinct isoforms, have been reported. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
