Gene: Eed (embryonic ectoderm development) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Eed
Name: embryonic ectoderm development
RGD ID: 1309782
Description: Exhibits chromatin binding activity. Predicted to contribute to histone methyltransferase activity (H3-K27 specific) and nucleosome binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II and spinal cord development. Localizes to nucleus. Used to study transient cerebral ischemia. Orthologous to human EED (embryonic ectoderm development); PARTICIPATES IN histone modification pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,4-dinitrotoluene; amphetamine; benzo[a]pyrene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: LOC293104; polycomb protein EED
