Gene: ASCL2 (achaete-scute family bHLH transcription factor 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ASCL2
Name: achaete-scute family bHLH transcription factor 2
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and E-box binding activity. Predicted to contribute to DNA-binding transcription factor activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; response to hypoxia; and spongiotrophoblast layer development. Localizes to cytoplasm and nucleus.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: achaete-scute complex homolog 2; achaete-scute complex homolog-like 2 (drosophila); achaete-scute complex-like 2; achaete-scute homolog 2; ASH-2; ASH2; bHLHa45; class A basic helix-loop-helix protein 45; HASH2; mammalian achaete/scute homologue 2; MASH2
