Gene: FOXB2 (forkhead box B2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: FOXB2
Name: forkhead box B2
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific. Predicted to be involved in anatomical structure morphogenesis; cell differentiation; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to the nuclear chromatin; INTERACTS WITH aflatoxin B1; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine (ortholog); benzo[a]pyrene (ortholog).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
