    basic FUNCTION
  • involved in regulation of transcription
  • involved in specification of a subpopulation of cardiac neural crest subsequent to migration
  • transcription factor that determines neuronal cell fate and identity in the developing medulla and spinal cord
  • play a role in the migration of muscle progenitor cells in limb buds and also in neuronal determination processes
  • potential role in early myocardial development
  • function in neural and muscle development--roles conserved from Drosophila to vertebrates
  • may be implicated in the etiology of scoliosis through abnormal somatosensory function
  • plays an essential role in specifying postmitotic dorsal interneuron populations during late pattern formation in the neural tube

    INTERACTION
    DNA

    small molecule
    protein
  • interacts with LBXCOR1 which acts as a transcriptional corepressor
  • directs expression of the known EMT inducers ZEB1, ZEB2, SNAI1, and transforming growth factor beta2 (TGFB2)
  • CHMP2B is likely one of the most highly regulated cell-autonomous targets of LBX1 in the embryonic neural tube
