Gene: MAF (MAF bZIP transcription factor) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MAF
Name: MAF bZIP transcription factor
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in lens fiber cell differentiation. Predicted to localize to the nuclear chromatin. Implicated in cataract and cataract 21 multiple types.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
