Gene: MAX (MYC associated factor X) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MAX
Name: MYC associated factor X
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; E-box binding activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Contributes to RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the nucleus and protein-DNA complex. Implicated in lung small cell carcinoma and pheochromocytoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
