FunctionActs as a transcriptional coactivator for NOTCH proteins. Has been shown to amplify NOTCH-induced transcription of HES1. Potentiates activation by NOTCH3 and NOTCH4 more efficiently than MAML1 or MAML3.
Tissue specificityWidely expressed with high levels detected in placenta, salivary gland and skeletal muscle.
Involvement in diseaseNote=A chromosomal aberration involving MAML2 is found in mucoepidermoid carcinomas, benign Warthin tumors and clear cell hidradenomas. Translocation t(11;19)(q21;p13) with CRTC1/MECT1. The fusion protein consists of the N-terminus of CRTC1 joined to the C-terminus of MAML2. The reciprocal fusion protein consisting of the N-terminus of MAML2 joined to the C-terminus of CRTC1 has been detected in a small number of mucoepidermoid carcinomas.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the mastermind family.
DomainThe C-terminal domain is required for transcriptional activation.
Cellular localizationNucleus speckle. Nuclear, in a punctate manner.
