Gene: ATF6 (activating transcription factor 6) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ATF6
Name: activating transcription factor 6
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; identical protein binding activity; and protein heterodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of ATF6-mediated unfolded protein response; positive regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter in response to endoplasmic reticulum stress; and visual perception. Localizes to several cellular components, including Golgi apparatus; endoplasmic reticulum; and integral component of endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Implicated in achromatopsia 7.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: ACHM7; activating transcription factor 6 alpha; ATF6-alpha; ATF6A; cAMP-dependent transcription factor ATF-6 alpha; cyclic AMP-dependent transcription factor ATF-6 alpha; DKFZp686P2194; FLJ21663
