Genes

PHOX2B

Paired-like homeobox 2b (PHOX2B) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions as a transcription factor involved in the development of norandrenergic neuron populations and determination of neurotransmitter pheynotype. Missense mutations, silent mutations, nonsense mutations, frameshift deletions, and frameshift insertions are observed in cancers such as skin cancer, pleural cancer, and colon cancer.
