Gene: Bhlhe40 (basic helix-loop-helix family, member e40) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Bhlhe40
Name: basic helix-loop-helix family, member e40
CRRD ID: 68439
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including DNA-binding transcription factor binding activity; DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; and protein dimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including circadian rhythm; negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and regulation of neuronal synaptic plasticity. Localizes to nucleus. Orthologous to human BHLHE40 (basic helix-loop-helix family member e40); PARTICIPATES IN hypoxia inducible factor pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis(4-hydroxyphenyl)ethane; 1,3-dinitrobenzene; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: basic helix-loop-helix domain containing, class B2; Bhlhb2; class B basic helix-loop-helix protein 2; class E basic helix-loop-helix protein 40; Dec1; enhancer-of split and hairy-related protein 2; enhancer-of-split and hairy-related protein 2; SHARP-2; Sharp2; stimulated by retinoic acid 14; Stra13; Stra14
