Gene: Htt (huntingtin) Mus musculus
Symbol: Htt
Name: huntingtin
Description: Exhibits diazepam binding activity and transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including carboxylic acid metabolic process; positive regulation of cilium assembly; and transport along microtubule. Localizes to several cellular components, including centriole; glutamatergic synapse; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Used to study Huntington's disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Huntington's disease and Parkinson's disease. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; olfactory epithelium; peripheral nervous system; retina; and testis. Orthologous to human HTT (huntingtin); PARTICIPATES IN Huntington's disease pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; aflatoxin B1.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: AI256365; C430023I11Rik; Hd; HD protein homolog; Hdh; Huntington disease gene homolog; huntington disease protein homolog; IT15
