DAAM2 is a widely expressed 1,068 amino acid protein that contains one DAD domain, one FH1 domain, one FH2 domain and one GBD domain, through which it may play a role in Wnt/Frizzled-associated signaling events. The gene encoding DAAM2 maps to human chromosome 6, which contains 170 million base pairs and comprises nearly 6 % of the human genome. Deletion of a portion of the q arm of chromosome 6 is associated with early onset intestinal cancer, suggesting the presence of a cancer susceptibility locus. Additionally, Porphyria cutanea tarda, Parkinson's disease, Stickler syndrome and a susceptibility to bipolar disorder are all associated with genes that map to chromosome 6.
