Gene: Srebf2 (sterol regulatory element binding transcription factor 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Srebf2
Name: sterol regulatory element binding transcription factor 2
RGD ID: 1307751
Description: Enables chromatin binding activity and sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of DNA-templated transcription; response to lead ion; and spermatogenesis. Acts upstream of or within positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Located in dendrite. Biomarker of kidney disease (multiple); lipid storage disease; obesity; and visual epilepsy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in carotid artery disease; diabetes mellitus (multiple); prostate cancer; sarcoma; and vascular dementia. Orthologous to human SREBF2 (sterol regulatory element binding transcription factor 2); PARTICIPATES IN altered p53 signaling pathway; sterol regulatory element-binding protein signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzofuran.
Type: protein-coding
Previously known as: MGC124823; Srebf2_retired; SREBP-2; SREBP2; sterol regulatory element binding factor 2; sterol regulatory element binding protein 2; sterol regulatory element-binding protein 2; sterol regulatory element-binding transcription factor 2
