This gene encodes a member of the thioredoxin superfamily, a group of small, multifunctional redox-active proteins. Members of this family are characterized by a conserved active motif called the thioredoxin fold that catalyzes disulfide bond formation and isomerization. The encoded protein acts a redox-dependent regulator of the Wnt signaling pathway and is involved in cell growth and differentiation. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2015]
Functions as a redox-dependent negative regulator of the Wnt signaling pathway, possibly by preventing ubiquitination of DVL3 by the BCR(KLHL12) complex. May also function as a transcriptional regulator act as a regulator of protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) (By similarity).

- ROBINOW SYNDROME, AUTOSOMAL RECESSIVE 2
Robinow syndrome, autosomal recessive 2 (RRS2): A recessive form of Robinow syndrome, a disease characterized by short-limb dwarfism, costovertebral segmentation defects and abnormalities of the head, face and external genitalia. The clinical signs are generally far more severe in recessive cases, particularly skeletal abnormalities. All patients with the recessive form suffer from vertebral segmentation abnormalities, resulting in scoliosis and chest deformities. Rib fusions are considered to be characteristic of the autosomal recessive form. Patients can also present brachydactyly, with extensive aplasia/hypoplasia of the phalanges and metacarpals/metatarsals, and brachy-syn-polydactyly of the hands and oligodactyly of the feet.
