LIM domain-binding protein 1 (LDB1), also known as Carboxyl-terminal LIM domain-binding protein 2 (CLIM2), binds to the LIM domain of a wide variety of LIM domain-containing transcription factors. LDB1 may regulate the transcriptional activity of LIM-containing proteins by determining specific partner interactions. It plays a role in the development of interneurons and motor neurons in cooperation with LHX3 and ISL1. LDB1 acts synergistically with LHX1/LIM1 in axis formation and activation of gene expression. It also acts with LMO2 in the regulation of red blood cell development, maintaining erythroid precursors in an immature state. LDB1 strongly interacts with the LIM2 domain of LMX1A to form homodimer. LDB1 protein is expressed in a wide range of adult tissues including brain, heart, skeletal muscle, colon, thymus, spleen, kidney, liver, small intestine, lung and peripheral blood leukocytes. Due to alternative splicing events, three isoforms exist for LDB1.
