Gene: Klf15 (Kruppel-like factor 15) Mus musculus
Symbol: Klf15
Name: Kruppel-like factor 15
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity and transcription regulatory region DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cardiac muscle hypertrophy in response to stress; glomerular visceral epithelial cell differentiation; and positive regulation of glucose import. Localizes to the nucleus. Used to study aortic aneurysm. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; cranium; early conceptus; metanephros; and nose. Orthologous to human KLF15 (Kruppel like factor 15); INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3,3',5,5'-tetrabromobisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
