Gene: LHX2 (LIM homeobox 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: LHX2
Name: LIM homeobox 2
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in neuron differentiation and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to the nuclear chromatin.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: hLhx2; homeobox protein LH-2; LH2; LIM homeobox protein 2; LIM HOX gene 2; LIM/homeobox protein Lhx2; MGC138390
