Gene: Foxb2 (forkhead box B2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Foxb2
Name: forkhead box B2
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific. Predicted to be involved in anatomical structure morphogenesis; cell differentiation; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to the nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; hemolymphoid system gland; integumental system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human FOXB2 (forkhead box B2); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; benzo[a]pyrene; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Fkh4; forkhead box protein B2; forkhead homolog 4; transcription factor FKH-4
