Gene: Nanog (Nanog homeobox) Mus musculus
Symbol: Nanog
Name: Nanog homeobox
CRRD ID: 1553059
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II sequence-specific DNA-binding transcription factor recruiting activity; and identical protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of BMP signaling pathway; regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and response to retinoic acid. Localizes to nucleoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including early conceptus; genitourinary system; gut; hemolymphoid system; and primitive streak. Orthologous to several human genes including NANOG (Nanog homeobox).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
