Gene: Olig2 (oligodendrocyte transcription factor 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Olig2
Name: oligodendrocyte transcription factor 2
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 cytoplasm and nucleus. Orthologous to human OLIG2 (oligodendrocyte transcription factor 2); INTERACTS WITH acrylamide; bisphenol A; carbofuran.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
