Gene: Ascl1 (achaete-scute family bHLH transcription factor 1) Mus musculus
Symbol: Ascl1
Name: achaete-scute family bHLH transcription factor 1
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity; chromatin binding activity; and sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including musculoskeletal movement, spinal reflex action; nervous system development; and neuroendocrine cell differentiation. Localizes to the neuronal cell body and nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital central hypoventilation syndrome. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; future brain; genitourinary system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human ASCL1 (achaete-scute family bHLH transcription factor 1); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3-methylcholanthrene; 4,4'-diaminodiphenylmethane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: achaete-scute complex homolog 1; achaete-scute complex homolog-like 1; achaete-scute complex-like protein 1; achaete-scute homolog 1; AI225900; ASH-1; ASH1; bHLHa46; mammalian achaete scute homolog 1; mASH-1; Mash1
