GENE - TERM ANNOTATION REPORT

RGD ID: 620974
Species: Rattus norvegicus
RGD Object: Gene
Symbol: Usf1
Name: upstream transcription factor 1
Acc ID: GO:0000981
Term: DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific
Definition: A protein or a member of a complex that interacts selectively and non-covalently with a specific DNA sequence (sometimes referred to as a motif) within the regulatory region of a RNA polymerase II-transcribed gene to modulate transcription. Regulatory regions include promoters (proximal and distal) and enhancers. Genes are transcriptional units.
Definition Source(s): GOC:txnOH-2018
Note: Use of the qualifier "multiple interactions" designates that the annotated interaction is comprised of a complex set of reactions and/or regulatory events, possibly involving additional chemicals and/or gene products.
