Gene: Foxl2 (forkhead box L2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Foxl2
Name: forkhead box L2
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific, RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity, and cysteine-type endopeptidase regulator activity involved in apoptotic process; predicted to be involved in several processes, including animal organ development, positive regulation of cellular metabolic process, and positive regulation of gonadotropin secretion; predicted to localize to the intercellular bridge and nucleus; orthologous to human FOXL2 (forkhead box L2); INTERACTS WITH all-trans-retinoic acid; mono(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate; oxybenzone.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: forkhead box protein L2; LOC367152
