Gene: Pura (purine rich element binding protein A) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Pura
Name: purine rich element binding protein A
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific, SMAD binding activity, and nucleic acid binding activity; predicted to be involved in several processes, including DNA unwinding involved in DNA replication, dendritic transport of messenger ribonucleoprotein complex, and epithelial cell proliferation; localizes to the nucleus and postsynaptic density; orthologous to human PURA (purine rich element binding protein A); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3H-1,2-dithiole-3-thione; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: LOW QUALITY PROTEIN: transcriptional activator protein Pur-alpha; purine-rich element binding protein A; purine-rich single-stranded DNA-binding protein alpha; transcriptional activator protein Pur-alpha
