HSF2


Also found in: Acronyms.

HSF2

A gene on chromosome 6q22.31 that encodes a member of the DNA-binding heat-shock transcription factor family, which are rapidly induced by temperature and other forms of intracellular stress. HSF1 is repressed by Hsp90 and/or multi-chaperone complexes.

Specifically, brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), bone morphogenetic protein receptor, type II (serine/threonine kinase) (BMPR2), calcium channel, voltage-dependent, L type, alpha 1C subunit (CACNA1C), casein kinase 1, delta (CSNK1D), high mobility group AT-hook 2 (HMGA2), heat shock transcription factor 2 (HSF2), heat shock 105kDa/110kDa protein 1 (HSPH1), and Pim-1 oncogene (PIM1) were present within the four most significant networks associated with the identified miRNA targets (Figure 2).
Using the predicted targets in our most significant miRNA networks, we found that the following genes overlap with the existing database: BDNF, BMPR2, CACNA1C CSNK1D, HMGA2, HSF2, HSPH1, and PIM1.
