Gene: Meis1 (Meis homeobox 1) Mus musculus
Symbol: Meis1
Name: Meis homeobox 1
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and protein heterodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including hemopoiesis; lens morphogenesis in camera-type eye; and negative regulation of cell differentiation. Localizes to the nucleus and transcription factor complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; limb bud; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human MEIS1 (Meis homeobox 1); INTERACTS WITH (R)-adrenaline; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 4-hydroxyphenyl retinamide.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
