ING2

ING2

A gene on chromosome 4q35.1 that encodes a protein thought to be involved in p53/TP53 activation and p53/TP53-dependent apoptotic pathways, probably by enhancing p53/TP53 acetylation. ING2’s activity is modulated by phosphoinositide binding; it is induced by the DNA-damaging agents such as etoposide.

ING2 is also a less preferred gene symbol for what is now designated as ING3 (see there) and INGX (see there).

As can be expected, these genes can be assigned to different functional groups such as cell death regulators (CASP2, ING2, MDM4, NAIP), transcriptional and translational regulation (DEPDC1, GABPB1, LHFPL2, NFIB, P0LR3C, RPL34, RPS3A, RPS21, RPS25, TFDP2, TRIM24, ZBTB1, ZBTB38, ZFP112), oxidative stress response (SPATS2L, GSTT2B, NQO1), DNA maintenance and processing (BAHCC1, FANCA, H1ST1H3G, IK, KDM4C, MCM7, PRB3, RNASEH2B, SNRPE, TFDP2), blood coagulation (FGA, MATR3, PROCR, P1K3CG), signal transduction (ANXA2, ARHGAP19, C7orf47, CCDC50, DTX3, FHL2, P1K3CG, RALB, T1CAM2), cytoskeletal components (BCL7A, DYNC1LI2, SEPT10, SEPT11), transport functions (ABCC1, FXYD2, S100A6, SCNN1G, XP05), or others (ADAM22, ALDH3A2, FAM161A, HDDC2, HLA-F).
