Gene: Atxn7 (ataxin 7) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Atxn7
Name: ataxin 7
Description: Predicted to have chromatin binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including histone deubiquitination; negative regulation of insulin-like growth factor receptor signaling pathway; and negative regulation of microtubule depolymerization. Predicted to localize to cytosol; microtubule cytoskeleton; and nucleoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in spinocerebellar ataxia type 7. Orthologous to human ATXN7 (ataxin 7); PARTICIPATES IN RNA polymerase II transcription initiation pathway; INTERACTS WITH amphetamine; chloroprene; flutamide.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: ataxin-7; LOC361015; RGD1562692; similar to spinocerebellar ataxia 7 homolog
