Gene: FOXA2 (forkhead box A2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: FOXA2
Name: forkhead box A2
CRRD ID: 1605726
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity and RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including dopaminergic neuron differentiation; negative regulation of epithelial to mesenchymal transition; and regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Localizes to cell junction and nucleoplasm. Implicated in type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: forkhead box protein A2; hepatic nuclear factor-3-beta; hepatocyte nuclear factor 3, beta; hepatocyte nuclear factor 3-beta; HNF-3-beta; HNF-3B; HNF3B; MGC19807; TCF-3B; TCF3B; transcription factor 3B
