HUGO Symbol: TGFA-ADD2 Full Name: N/A
Exons: N/A Introns: N/A

TGFA (transforming growth factor alpha) encodes a ligand for the epidermal growth factor receptor, which activates a signalling pathway for cell proliferation, differentiation and development. ADD2 (adducin 2) belongs to a family of membrane cytoskleleton-associated proteins that promote the assembly of the spectrin-actin network. Adducins are involved in signal transduction in various cellular functions upon regulation by protein kinase C-dependent and calcium/calmodulin-dependent pathways. Adducin 2 is expressed during early erythropoiesis and at sites of cell-cell contact in epithelial tissues. Genetic variance in the TGFA-ADD2 intergenic region associated with painful episodes in patients with sickle cell disease.
