CDX2 Involved in the transcriptional regulation of multiple genes expressed in the intestinal epithelium. Important in broad range of functions from early differentiation to maintenance of the intestinal epithelial lining of both the small and large intestine. Binds preferentially to methylated DNA. Belongs to the Caudal homeobox family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
