Gene: Rax (retina and anterior neural fold homeobox) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Rax
Name: retina and anterior neural fold homeobox
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including hypothalamus development; limb development; and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to the nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in isolated microphthalmia 3. Orthologous to human RAX (retina and anterior neural fold homeobox); INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; acrylamide; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: retina and anterior neural fold homeobox protein; retinal homeobox protein Rx; retinal homeobox transcription factor Rx/rax; Rx
