Gene: Sox21 (SRY-box transcription factor 21) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Sox21
Name: SRY-box transcription factor 21
Description: Predicted to have 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 hair follicle development; positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and stem cell differentiation. Orthologous to human SOX21 (SRY-box transcription factor 21); INTERACTS WITH bisphenol A; decabromodiphenyl ether; testosterone.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: LOC306168; LOW QUALITY PROTEIN: transcription factor SOX-21; SRY (sex determining region Y)-box 21; SRY box 21; SRY-box containing gene 21; transcription factor SOX-21
