Gene: FOXK2 (forkhead box K2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: FOXK2
Name: forkhead box K2
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and magnesium ion binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of transcription, DNA-templated and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the mitochondrion and nucleoplasm.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: cellular transcription factor ILF-1; forkhead box protein K2; FOXK1; ILF; ILF-1; ILF1; interleukin enhancer binding factor 1; interleukin enhancer-binding factor 1; nGTBP
