Gene: Helt (helt bHLH transcription factor) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Helt
Name: helt bHLH transcription factor
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific, nucleic acid binding activity, and protein homodimerization activity; predicted to be involved in several processes, including circulatory system development, nervous system development, and regulation of cellular biosynthetic process; predicted to localize to the nucleus and transcription factor complex; orthologous to human HELT (helt bHLH transcription factor); INTERACTS WITH bisphenol A; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine (ortholog); arsenite(3-) (ortholog).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: hairy and enhancer of split-related protein HELT; Helt-ps1; HES/HEY-like transcription factor; HES/HEY-like transcription factor, pseudogene 1; Hesl; Hey-like transcription factor; Hey-like transcription factor (zebrafish); LOC498633; RGD1564073; similar to Heslike
