Gene: Uty (ubiquitously transcribed tetratricopeptide repeat gene, Y chromosome) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Uty
Name: ubiquitously transcribed tetratricopeptide repeat gene, Y chromosome
Description: Exhibits chromatin binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including animal organ development; cardiac muscle cell contraction; and regulation of chromatin silencing. Localizes to the nucleus; PARTICIPATES IN histone modification pathway; renal cell carcinoma pathway; INTERACTS WITH aflatoxin B1 (ortholog); benzo[a]pyrene (ortholog); dibutyl phthalate (ortholog).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: histone demethylase UTY; Kdm6a; LOC317178; lysine (K)-specific demethylase 6A; lysine demethylase 6A; lysine-specific demethylase 6A; RGD1565481; ubiquitously transcribed tetratricopeptide repeat containing, Y-linked; ubiquitously transcribed tetratricopeptide repeat gene, X chromosome; ubiquitously transcribed tetratricopeptide repeat, X chromosome; Utx
