Gene: Foxa1 (forkhead box A1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Foxa1
Name: forkhead box A1
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA binding activity, DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific, and protein domain specific binding activity; involved in negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; localizes to the nucleus; orthologous to human FOXA1 (forkhead box A1); PARTICIPATES IN forkhead class A signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzofuran; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: forkhead box protein A1; hepatocyte nuclear factor 3 alpha; hepatocyte nuclear factor 3, alpha; hepatocyte nuclear factor 3-alpha; HNF-3-alpha; HNF-3A; Hnf3a
