Gene: MAZ (MYC associated zinc finger protein) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MAZ
Name: MYC associated zinc finger protein
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of transcription, DNA-templated; regulation of signal transduction; and transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to the nucleus; INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; aflatoxin B1; all-trans-retinoic acid.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
