Gene: PAX7 (paired box 7) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PAX7
Name: paired box 7
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific. Predicted to be involved in anatomical structure morphogenesis and negative regulation of apoptotic process. Predicted to localize to the nuclear chromatin. Implicated in alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
