Gene: Mesp2 (mesoderm posterior bHLH transcription factor 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Mesp2
Name: mesoderm posterior bHLH transcription factor 2
CRRD ID: 1305959
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 several processes, including mesodermal cell migration; regulation of gene expression; and somite rostral/caudal axis specification. Predicted to localize to nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in spondylocostal dysostosis. Orthologous to human MESP2 (mesoderm posterior bHLH transcription factor 2); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; benzo[a]pyrene; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: LOC293046; mesoderm posterior 2; mesoderm posterior 2 homolog; mesoderm posterior 2 homolog (mouse); mesoderm posterior basic helix-loop-helix transcription factor 2; mesoderm posterior protein 2
