Gene: Pou3f2 (POU class 3 homeobox 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Pou3f2
Name: POU class 3 homeobox 2
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription factor activity, HMG box domain binding activity, and sequence-specific DNA binding activity; involved in regulation of transcription, DNA-templated; localizes to the nucleus; orthologous to human POU3F2 (POU class 3 homeobox 2); INTERACTS WITH 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; ammonium chloride; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: brain-2; brain-specific homeobox/POU domain protein 2; Brn-2; nervous system-specific octamer-binding transcription factor N-Oct-3; oct-7; octamer-binding protein 7; octamer-binding transcription factor 7; OTF-7; POU domain, class 3, transcription factor 2
