Gene: Cbx7 (chromobox 7) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cbx7
Name: chromobox 7
Description: Predicted to have chromatin binding activity; methylated histone binding activity; and single-stranded RNA binding activity. Involved in developmental process involved in reproduction; positive regulation of transcription elongation from RNA polymerase II promoter; and response to drug. Localizes to nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in breast cancer; multiple myeloma; and myeloid leukemia. Orthologous to human CBX7 (chromobox 7); PARTICIPATES IN histone modification pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: chromobox homolog 7; chromobox protein homolog 7
