TBX1 haploinsufficiency is considered a major contributor to the del22q11.2/DiGeorge syndrome (DGS) phenotype. We have used proteomic tools to look at all the major proteins involved in the TBXI-mediated pathways in an attempt to better understand the molecular interactions instrumental to its cellular functions. We found more than 90 proteins that could be targeted by TBX1 through different mechanisms. The most interesting observation is that overexpression of TBX1 results in down-regulation of two proteins involved in retinoic acid metabolism.
- DiGeorge syndrome
- Retinoic acid
- T-box containing transcription factor
