Gene: MEOX2 (mesenchyme homeobox 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MEOX2
Name: mesenchyme homeobox 2
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II distal enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of cell migration involved in sprouting angiogenesis and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the cytoplasm and nucleus.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
