Gene: Olig2 (oligodendrocyte transcription factor 2) Rattus norvegicus
Analyze
Symbol: Olig2
Name: oligodendrocyte transcription factor 2
Description: ENCODES a protein that exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity (ortholog); DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific (ortholog); HMG box domain binding (ortholog); INVOLVED IN myelination (ortholog); negative regulation of neuron differentiation (ortholog); negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II (ortholog); ASSOCIATED WITH genetic disease (ortholog); FOUND IN cytoplasm (ortholog); nucleus (ortholog); INTERACTS WITH acrylamide; bisphenol A; carbofuran
AGR Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific, HMG box domain binding activity, and protein homodimerization activity; predicted to be involved in negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II and nervous system development; predicted to localize to the cytoplasm and nucleus; orthologous to human OLIG2 (oligodendrocyte transcription factor 2).
