  • Function

    May be involved in neuronal migration during development of the cerebral neocortex.
  • Tissue specificity

    Ubiquitously expressed. In brain, highly expressed in the entorhinal cortex, inferior temporal cortex, medial temporal cortex, hypothalamus, amygdala and hippocampus.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in DCDC2 may be a cause of susceptibility to dyslexia type 2 (DYX2) [MIM:600202]; also known as specific reading disability type 2. Dyslexia is a relatively common, complex cognitive disorder that affects 5% to 10% of school-aged children. The disorder is characterized by an impairment of reading performance despite adequate motivational, educational and intellectual opportunities and in the absence of sensory or neurological disability.
