Gene: Atf6b (activating transcription factor 6 beta) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Atf6b
Name: activating transcription factor 6 beta
Description: Predicted to contribute to DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of ATF6-mediated unfolded protein response and positive regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter in response to endoplasmic reticulum stress. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including RNA polymerase II transcription regulator complex; endoplasmic reticulum membrane; and protein-DNA complex. Orthologous to human ATF6B (activating transcription factor 6 beta); PARTICIPATES IN Endoplasmic Reticulum-associated degradation pathway; INTERACTS WITH bisphenol A; cadmium dichloride; endosulfan.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: cAMP responsive element binding protein-like 1; Crebl1; cyclic AMP-dependent transcription factor ATF-6 beta; MGC112556
