  • Function
    Transcription factor for the thyroid-specific expression of the genes exclusively expressed in the thyroid cell type, maintaining the functional differentiation of such cells.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in the excretory system, thyroid gland and Wilms tumors.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in PAX8 are the cause of congenital hypothyroidism non-goitrous type 2 (CHNG2) [MIM:218700]. CHNG2 is a disease characterized by thyroid dysgenesis, the most frequent cause of congenital hypothyroidism, accounting for 85% of case. The thyroid gland can be completely absent (athyreosis), ectopically located and/or severely hypoplastic. Ectopic thyroid gland is the most frequent malformation, with thyroid tissue being found most often at the base of the tongue.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 paired domain.
  • Developmental stage
    In developing excretory system, during thyroid differentiation and in adult thyroid.
  • Cellular localization
    Nucleus.
  • Information by UniProt
