GTF2I repeat domain containing 2B

From NCBI Gene:
This gene encodes a glycosylated phosphoprotein with a leucine zipper motif, two helix-loop-helix motifs (I repeats) that are similar to domains found in the TFII-I family of transcription factors, one CHARLIE8 transposable element-like sequence, and a BED zinc finger. This gene lies within a region that is deleted in Williams-Beuren syndrome. Alternatively spliced variants which encode different protein isoforms have been described; however, not all variants have been fully characterized. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GTF2IRD2B is located in the Williams-Beuren syndrome (WBS) critical region. WBS results from a hemizygous deletion of several genes on chromosome 7q11.23, thought to arise as a consequence of unequal crossing over between highly homologous low-copy repeat sequences flanking the deleted region (PubMed:16532385).
