Gene: Snai2 (snail family zinc finger 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Snai2
Name: snail family zinc finger 2
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and chromatin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including desmosome disassembly; endocardial cushion formation; and negative regulation of extrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway in absence of ligand. Localizes to the cytoplasm and nucleus. Used to study Waardenburg syndrome type 2D. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Waardenburg syndrome type 2D and piebaldism. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; and limb. Orthologous to human SNAI2 (snail family transcriptional repressor 2); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2-ethylhexan-1-ol; 2-Ethylhexanoic acid.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
