Official Full Name
inhibitor of DNA binding 2, dominant negative helix-loop-helix protein
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the inhibitor of DNA binding family, members of which are transcriptional;regulators that contain a helix-loop-helix (HLH) domain but not a basic domain. Members of the inhibitor of DNA;binding family inhibit the functions of basic helix-loop-helix transcription factors in a dominant-negative manner by;suppressing their heterodimerization partners through the HLH domains. This protein may play a role in negatively;regulating cell differentiation. A pseudogene of this gene is located on chromosome 3.
