Gene: Pax7 (paired box 7) Mus musculus
Symbol: Pax7
Name: paired box 7
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; chordate embryonic development; and positive regulation of macromolecule metabolic process. Localizes to the nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; musculoskeletal system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human PAX7 (paired box 7); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; all-trans-retinoic acid; bis(2-chloroethyl) sulfide.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: paired box gene 7; paired box protein Pax-7; paired box transcription factor PAX7; Pax-7
