Gene: Hnf1b (HNF1 homeobox B) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Hnf1b
Name: HNF1 homeobox B
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific, protein dimerization activity, and proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity; involved in several processes, including embryonic morphogenesis, hepatocyte differentiation, and regulation of gene expression; localizes to the nucleus; orthologous to human HNF1B (HNF1 homeobox B); PARTICIPATES IN forkhead class A signaling pathway; maturity-onset diabetes of the young pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,6-dinitrotoluene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
