    basic FUNCTION
  • may be a signaling adaptor molecule
  • can enhance the transcriptional activity of LMO2
  • may act as a specific regulator during embryonic development by modulating the transcriptional activity of a novel E-box sequence-binding complex that contains BEX2, LMO2, NSCL2 and LDB1
