Gene: MYT1 (myelin transcription factor 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MYT1
Name: myelin transcription factor 1
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in cell differentiation; nervous system development; and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the cytosol and nucleoplasm.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
