Gene: Npas2 (neuronal PAS domain protein 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Npas2
Name: neuronal PAS domain protein 2
RGD ID: 1309681
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; Hsp90 protein binding activity; and RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including circadian regulation of gene expression; locomotor rhythm; and positive regulation of nucleobase-containing compound metabolic process. Predicted to localize to CLOCK-BMAL transcription complex; cytosol; and nucleoplasm. Orthologous to human NPAS2 (neuronal PAS domain protein 2); INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether; 2-methoxyethanol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
