Gene: Myt1 (myelin transcription factor 1) Mus musculus
Symbol: Myt1
Name: myelin transcription factor 1
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including diaphragm development; regulation of gene expression; and regulation of insulin secretion involved in cellular response to glucose stimulus. Localizes to the nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; future brain; genitourinary system; peripheral nervous system ganglion; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human MYT1 (myelin transcription factor 1).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
