Gene: HOXA2 (homeobox A2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: HOXA2
Name: homeobox A2
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the nucleoplasm.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: homeo box a2; homeobox protein Hox-1K; homeobox protein Hox-A2; HOX1K; MCOHI
