Gene: EN2 (engrailed homeobox 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: EN2
Name: engrailed homeobox 2
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in neuron differentiation and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the fibrillar center and nucleoplasm. Implicated in autistic disorder.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: autism susceptibility 1; AUTS1; engrailed homolog 2; engrailed-2; homeobox protein en-2; homeobox protein engrailed-2; hu-En-2
