Gene: Gtf2b (general transcription factor IIB) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Gtf2b
Name: general transcription factor IIB
CRRD ID: 619735
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including RNA polymerase II core promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity; RNA polymerase II general transcription initiation factor activity; and transcription factor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including RNA polymerase II core complex assembly; positive regulation by host of viral transcription; and transcription initiation from RNA polymerase II promoter. Predicted to localize to chromosome; nucleoplasm; and transcription preinitiation complex. Orthologous to human GTF2B (general transcription factor IIB); PARTICIPATES IN RNA polymerase II transcription initiation pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,4-dinitrotoluene; ammonium chloride; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: general transcription factor TFIIB; RNA polymerase II alpha initiation factor; transcription initiation factor IIB
