Variants in BACH2 are linked to autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. The BACH2 gene (BTB and CNC homology 1, basic leucine zipper transcription factor 2) is a gene that encodes a transcription factor involved in regulating gene expression. It plays important roles in various biological processes, including immune cell development and function.BACH2 is particularly significant in the regulation of B cells, which are a type of white blood cell involved in the immune response. BACH2 helps control the differentiation of B cells into specialized types and regulates the production of antibodies.
