      DescriptionAnti-MSX2 Antibody, clone 7D11.1
      Alternate Names
      • Homeobox protein MSX-2
      • Homeobox protein Hox-8
      Background InformationMSX2, also known as HOX-8, is a homeobox containing transcription factor, which is a member of the MSH family of homeobox proteins, and is expressed at sites of epithelial-mesenchymal interaction during embryogenesis. More specifically, MSX2 has been found to be expressed in the epidermis, hair follicles, and fibroblasts of the developing fetal skin, and is detected as a diffuse cytoplasmic signal in fetal epidermis and portions of the hair follicle and dermis. In adult epidermis, however, MSX2 expression is localized to the nucleus. More recently, when in combination with another homeobox gene, MSX1, MSX2 has been shown to play a critical role in the developmental stages of both neural tube and neural crest, suggesting that both the MSX1 and the MSX2 genes play an important role in organogenesis.

      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene SummaryThis gene encodes a member of the muscle segment homeobox gene family. The encoded protein is a transcriptional repressor whose normal activity may establish a balance between survival and apoptosis of neural crest-derived cells required for proper craniofacial morphogenesis. The encoded protein may also have a role in promoting cell growth under certain conditions and may be an important target for the RAS signaling pathways. Mutations in this gene are associated with parietal foramina 1 and craniosynostosis type 2. [provided by RefSeq].

      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: Acts as a transcriptional regulator in bone development. Represses the ALPL promoter activity and antogonizes the stimulatory effect of DLX5 on ALPL expression during osteoblast differentiation. Probable morphogenetic role. May play a role in limb-pattern formation. In osteoblasts, suppresses transcription driven by the osteocalcin FGF response element (OCFRE). Binds to the homeodomain-response element of the ALPL promoter.

      SUBUNIT STRUCTURE: Interacts with MINT By similarity. Interacts with XRCC6 (Ku70) and XRCC5 (Ku80).


      INVOLVEMENT IN DISEASE: Defects in MSX2 are the cause of parietal foramina 1 (PFM1) [MIM:168500]; also known as foramina parietalia permagna (FPP). PFM1 is an autosomal dominant disease characterized by oval defects of the parietal bones caused by deficient ossification around the parietal notch, which is normally obliterated during the fifth fetal month. Defects in MSX2 are the cause of parietal foramina with cleidocranial dysplasia (PFMCCD) [MIM:168550]; also known as cleidocranial dysplasia with parietal foramina. PFMCCD combines skull defects in the form of enlarged parietal foramina and deficient ossification of the clavicles. Ref.12

      Defects in MSX2 are the cause of craniosynostosis type 2 (CRS2) [MIM:604757]; also known as craniosynostosis Boston-type (CSB). CRS2 is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by the premature fusion of calvarial sutures. The craniosynostosis phenotype is either fronto-orbital recession, or frontal bossing, or turribrachycephaly, or cloverleaf skull. Associated features include severe headache, high incidence of visual problems (myopia or hyperopia), and short first metatarsals. Intelligence is normal.
