Official Full Name
glial cells missing homolog 2 (Drosophila)
Gcm2, a mouse ortholog of the Drosophila Glial Cells Missing gene, is expressed in the parathyroid-specific domains in the 3rd pouches from E9.5. The null mutation of Gcm2 causes aparathyroidism in the fetal and adult mouse and has been proposed to be a master regulator for parathyroid development. During Drosophila embryogenesis Gcm2 plays a crucial role in promoting glial cell differentiation.
