FunctionCould act as a modulator of transcription.
Tissue specificityExpressed at high level in the testis. Expressed at low level in thyroid. Not detected in tonsil, colon, lung, spleen, prostate, kidney, striated and smooth muscles. Detected in rhabdomyosarcoma and fibrosarcoma cell lines. Not detected in mesenchymal and epithelial cell lines.
Involvement in diseaseNote=A chromosomal aberration involving SSX2 may be a cause of synovial sarcoma. Translocation t(X;18)(p11.2;q11.2). The translocation is specifically found in more than 80% of synovial sarcoma. The fusion products SSXT-SSX1 or SSXT-SSX2 are probably responsible for transforming activity. Heterogeneity in the position of the breakpoint can occur (low frequency).
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the SSX family. Contains 1 KRAB-related domain.
