Autosomal recessive hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy (HMSN) or Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous disorder of the peripheral nervous system. The clinical picture includes progressive distal weakness and atrophy, foot deformities, and distal sensory loss. For autosomal recessive CMT type 4B2 one locus was mapped to chromosome 11p15. Recently, mutations in SET binding factor 2 (SBF2), were identified as cause of CMT4B2. SBF2 is a member of the pseudo-phosphatase branch of myotubularins and all disease-associated mutations known to date lead to shortened or truncated proteins, also implicating loss-of-function. Here, we describe the molecular cloning and the expression pattern of Sbf2. The mRNA spans around 8 kb, and the protein shares high amino acid identity compared to the human protein suggesting a conserved function. Sbf2 is encoded by 40 exons on murine chromosome 7. In situ hybridization, Northern blots and RT-analysis revealed a very broad pattern of Sbf2 expression. Overexpressed epitope tagged Sbf2 showed cytoplasmic distribution. Taken together, this study provides information about the mRNA expression and subcellular localization of Sbf2 and as such helps in further understanding its function in development and disease.
