Gene: MEF2C (myocyte enhancer factor 2C) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MEF2C
Name: myocyte enhancer factor 2C
CRRD ID: 1349172
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA binding activity; DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; and protein heterodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of cell migration; positive regulation of cell differentiation; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to cytoplasm; nuclear speck; and protein-containing complex. Implicated in autosomal dominant mental retardation 20.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: C5DELq14.3; DEL5q14.3; MADS box transcription enhancer factor 2, polypeptide C; myocyte-specific enhancer factor 2C
