Gene: FOXD2 (forkhead box D2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: FOXD2
Name: forkhead box D2
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and sequence-specific double-stranded DNA binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to nuclear chromatin.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: FKHL17; forkhead box protein D2; forkhead, drosophila, homolog-like 17; forkhead-like 17; forkhead-related activator 9; forkhead-related protein FKHL17; forkhead-related transcription factor 9; FREAC-9; FREAC9
