Gene: Mrtfa (myocardin related transcription factor A) Mus musculus
Symbol: Mrtfa
Name: myocardin related transcription factor A
RGD ID: 1312565
Description: Exhibits actin monomer binding activity; transcription regulator activity; and transcription regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of apoptotic process; nervous system development; and positive regulation of transcription via serum response element binding activity. Localizes to cytoplasm and nucleus. Is expressed in cerebellum; early conceptus; liver; oocyte; and telencephalon. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in immunodeficiency 66 and megakaryocytic leukemia. Orthologous to human MRTFA (myocardin related transcription factor A); INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; buta-1,3-diene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
