Definition: Inhibitor of DNA binding 2 (Id2), a helix-loop-helix protein of the inhibitor of differentiation (ID) family, is involved in hematopoiesis, mainly through interaction with the E-family of transcription factors.

Pathology

- Id2 is overexpressed in some types of B-cell lymphomas , including classical Hodgkin lymphoma.

- The helix-loop-helix protein Id2 is expressed differentially and induced by MYC in T-cell lymphomas.

  • Id2 commonly is overexpressed in highly proliferative T-cell lymphomas.
  • Its expression may result from transcriptional activation of MYC in these tumors.
