Protein capicua homolog

CIC

Definition: CIC, a human homolog of Drosophila capicua which encodes a high mobility group box transcription factor, is fused to a double homeodomain gene DUX4 as a result of a recurrent chromosomal translocation t(4;19)(q35;q13).

Molecular biology

- fusion gene between DUX4 at 4q35 (MIM.606009) and CIC at 19q35 by t(4;19)(q35;q13) (16717057) in Ewing-like sarcoma
