Gene: Barx2 (BARX homeobox 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Barx2
Name: BARX homeobox 2
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and chromatin binding activity. Predicted to be involved in cartilage condensation; myotube differentiation; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to the cytosol; nucleoplasm; and transcription factor complex. Orthologous to human BARX2 (BARX homeobox 2); INTERACTS WITH indole-3-methanol; N-acetyl-L-cysteine; N-nitrosodiethylamine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: BarH-like homeobox 2; BARX homeobox 2, pseudogene 1; Barx2-ps1; homeobox protein BarH-like 2; LOC679701; similar to BarH-like homeobox 2
