Potential relevance to the human ageing process

Main reason for selection
Entry selected based on evidence showing that the gene product to be a target of genes previously linked to ageing
Description

GTF2H2 is a component of the core TFIIH basal transcription factor that is involved in DNA repair and transcription [954]. The association of TFIIH with some ageing-related genes, such as ERCC2 [955], suggests GTF2H2 may also play a role in ageing, though further studies are needed to investigate this hypothesis.
