Gene: GRHL2 (grainyhead like transcription factor 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GRHL2
Name: grainyhead like transcription factor 2
CRRD ID: 1342517
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; chromatin DNA binding activity; and sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including bicellular tight junction assembly; negative regulation of keratinocyte differentiation; and regulation of nucleobase-containing compound metabolic process. Localizes to cell-cell junction and nucleoplasm. Implicated in autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 28 and posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy 4.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
