Gene: Tfap2a (transcription factor AP-2 alpha) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Tfap2a
Name: transcription factor AP-2 alpha
RGD ID: 1310267
Description: Enables sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including Schwann cell development; response to lipopolysaccharide; and response to water deprivation. Located in cytosol and nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in branchiooculofacial syndrome. Orthologous to human TFAP2A (transcription factor AP-2 alpha); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
Previously known as: activating enhancer-binding protein 2 alpha; activating enhancer-binding protein 2-alpha; activator protein 2; AP-2 transcription factor; AP2-alpha; LOC306862; Tcfap2a; transcription factor AP-2, alpha; transcription factor AP-2-alpha
