Gene: Bhlha15 (basic helix-loop-helix family, member a15) Mus musculus
Symbol: Bhlha15
Name: basic helix-loop-helix family, member a15
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to glucose starvation; intracellular distribution of mitochondria; and mitochondrial calcium ion transmembrane transport. Localizes to the nucleus. Is expressed in alimentary system; early conceptus; genitourinary system; and limb mesenchyme. Orthologous to human BHLHA15 (basic helix-loop-helix family member a15); PARTICIPATES IN maturity-onset diabetes of the young pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; Benzo[ghi]perylene; bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: 1810009C13Rik; basic helix-loop-helix domain containing, class B, 8; Bhlhb8; class A basic helix-loop-helix protein 15; class B basic helix-loop-helix protein 8; MIST-1; Mist1; muscle, intestine and stomach expression 1
