Target

  • FunctionTranscription factor for the thyroid-specific expression of the genes exclusively expressed in the thyroid cell type, maintaining the functional differentiation of such cells.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in the excretory system, thyroid gland and Wilms tumors.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects 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 similaritiesContains 1 paired domain.
  • Developmental stageIn developing excretory system, during thyroid differentiation and in adult thyroid.
  • Cellular localizationNucleus.
