The gene is a member of the transcription factor DP family. The encoded protein forms heterodimers with the E2F transcription factors resulting in transcriptional activation of cell cycle regulated genes. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
Protein Aliases: BTPS2; DP2.5; E2F dimerization partner 2; Transcription factor Dp-2; transcription factor Dp-2 (E2F dimerization partner 2)
