Gene: NRF1 (nuclear respiratory factor 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: NRF1
Name: nuclear respiratory factor 1
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and RNA polymerase II core promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to cytosol and nucleoplasm. Implicated in Huntington's disease.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: alpha palindromic-binding protein; ALPHA-PAL; NRF-1

NCBI Annotation Information: Note: NRF1 (Gene ID: 4899) and NFE2L1 (Gene ID: 4779) share the NRF1 symbol/alias in common. NRF1 is a widely used alternative name for nuclear factor, erythroid 2 like 1 (NFE2L1), which can be confused with the official symbol for nuclear respiratory factor 1 (NRF1). [05 Jul 2018]
