Gene: Phox2b (paired-like homeobox 2b) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Phox2b
Name: paired-like homeobox 2b
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity; predicted to be involved in several processes, including animal organ development, brainstem development, and nervous system development; localizes to the nucleus; orthologous to human PHOX2B (paired like homeobox 2B); INTERACTS WITH bisphenol A; copper atom; copper(0).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: LOW QUALITY PROTEIN: paired mesoderm homeobox protein 2B; NBPhox; neuroblastoma Phox; paired mesoderm homeobox protein 2B
