From NCBI Gene:

This gene encodes a member of the beta-transducin protein family. Most proteins of the beta-transducin family are involved in regulatory functions. This protein is possibly involved in some intracellular signaling pathway. This gene is deleted in Williams-Beuren syndrome, a developmental disorder caused by deletion of multiple genes at 7q11.23.

From UniProt:

TBL2 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. Haploinsufficiency of TBL2 may be the cause of certain cardiovascular and musculo-skeletal abnormalities observed in the disease.

Cytogenetic Location: 7q11.23, which is the long (q) arm of chromosome 7 at position 11.23

Molecular Location: base pairs 73,568,944 to 73,578,683 on chromosome 7 (Homo sapiens Annotation Release 108, GRCh38.p7) (NCBI)
