Gene: BCL6 (BCL6 transcription repressor) Homo sapiens
Symbol: BCL6
Name: BCL6 transcription repressor
CRRD ID: 1319642
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription factor activity; chromatin binding activity; and identical protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of cell growth; negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and positive regulation of regulatory T cell differentiation. Localizes to Golgi apparatus and nucleoplasm. Colocalizes with replication fork. Implicated in B-cell lymphoma and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Biomarker of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
