Gene: ARNT (aryl hydrocarbon receptor nuclear translocator) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ARNT
Name: aryl hydrocarbon receptor nuclear translocator
CRRD ID: 732739
Description: Exhibits aryl hydrocarbon receptor binding activity; cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and protein dimerization activity. Contributes to DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific. Involved in positive regulation of vascular endothelial growth factor production; regulation of cellular biosynthetic process; and response to hypoxia. Localizes to RNA polymerase II transcription regulator complex and nuclear body. Implicated in renal cell carcinoma. Biomarker of type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
