Gene: Hmx2 (H6 homeobox 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Hmx2
Name: H6 homeobox 2
Description: Predicted to have sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in animal organ development; positive regulation of cell population proliferation; and positive regulation of mRNA splicing, via spliceosome. Predicted to localize to the nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; nervous system; sensory organ; and thymus. Orthologous to human HMX2 (H6 family homeobox 2); INTERACTS WITH 1,1-dichloroethene; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 4,4'-sulfonyldiphenol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: H6 homeo box 2; homeobox protein HMX2; homeobox protein Nkx-5.2; MGC32455; NK-related homeobox; Nkx-5.2; Nkx5-2
