InnateDB Annotation
Summary
Nfatc2 is a cytokine that acts as an autocrine growth factor during an immune response to bacterial and viral infection, as well as tumorigenesis.
InnateDB Annotation from Orthologs
Summary
[Homo sapiens] NFATC2 interacts with JUN to synergistically activate interleukin-2 (IL2) transcription in T cells, a cytokine that acts as an autocrine growth factor during an immune response to bacterial and viral infection, as well as tumourigenesis.
Entrez Gene
Summary This gene does not have any Entrez summary - the following is the summary from its human ortholog ENSG00000101096:
This gene is a member of the nuclear factor of activated T cells (NFAT) family. The product of this gene is a DNA-binding protein with a REL-homology region (RHR) and an NFAT-homology region (NHR). This protein is present in the cytosol and only translocates to the nucleus upon T cell receptor (TCR) stimulation, where it becomes a member of the nuclear factors of activated T cells transcription complex. This complex plays a central role in inducing gene transcription during the immune response. Alternate transcriptional splice variants encoding different isoforms have been characterized.
