Gene: Polr2k (polymerase (RNA) II (DNA directed) polypeptide K) Mus musculus
Symbol: Polr2k
Name: polymerase (RNA) II (DNA directed) polypeptide K
Description: Predicted to contribute to RNA polymerase I activity; RNA polymerase II activity; and RNA polymerase III activity. Involved in transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to the RNA polymerase I complex; RNA polymerase II, core complex; and RNA polymerase III complex. Is expressed in several structures, including cerebral cortex; nose; submandibular gland primordium; thymus primordium; and tooth. Orthologous to human POLR2K (RNA polymerase II subunit K); PARTICIPATES IN RNA polymerase I transcription pathway; RNA polymerase II transcription pathway; RNA polymerase III transcription pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: ABC10-alpha; DNA-directed RNA polymerase II subunit K; DNA-directed RNA polymerases I, II, and III subunit RPABC4; MafY; metallothionein-I activator; metallothionein-I gene transcription activator; Mt1a; RNA polymerases I, II, and III subunit ABC4; RPABC4; RPB10alpha; RPB12; RPB7.0
