Gene: Gbx2 (gastrulation brain homeobox 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Gbx2
Name: gastrulation brain homeobox 2
CRRD ID: 621866
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II core promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and RNA polymerase II transcription factor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including branching involved in blood vessel morphogenesis; nervous system development; and neural crest cell migration. Predicted to localize to nucleus. Orthologous to human GBX2 (gastrulation brain homeobox 2); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzofuran; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; all-trans-retinoic acid.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
