Gene: Atf1 (activating transcription factor 1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Atf1
Name: activating transcription factor 1
RGD ID: 1307360
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of macromolecule biosynthetic process; positive regulation of neuron projection development; and response to cobalt ion. Localizes to nucleus and transcription regulator complex. Biomarker of polycystic kidney disease. Orthologous to human ATF1 (activating transcription factor 1); INTERACTS WITH 2,4-dinitrotoluene; 2,6-dinitrotoluene; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Atf-1; cyclic AMP-dependent transcription factor ATF-1
