Gene: Ovol2 (ovo like zinc finger 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Ovol2
Name: ovo like zinc finger 2
CRRD ID: 1314568
Description: Exhibits DNA binding activity; DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; and chromatin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including circulatory system development; embryonic morphogenesis; and regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Localizes to nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including early conceptus; genitourinary system; gut; head surface ectoderm; and otocyst. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy 1. Orthologous to human OVOL2 (ovo like zinc finger 2); INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3',4,4',5-Pentachlorobiphenyl.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
