Gene: Olig3 (oligodendrocyte transcription factor 3) Mus musculus
Symbol: Olig3
Name: oligodendrocyte transcription factor 3
Description: Exhibits transcription corepressor activity. Involved in negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; spinal cord motor neuron cell fate specification; and spinal cord motor neuron migration. Predicted to localize to the nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; future hindbrain; genitourinary system; inner ear; and skeletal muscle. Orthologous to human OLIG3 (oligodendrocyte transcription factor 3); INTERACTS WITH 2,2',4,4',5,5'-hexachlorobiphenyl; 2,2',5,5'-tetrachlorobiphenyl; cadmium dichloride.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: basic helix-loop-helix domain-containing class B protein 7; Bhlhb7; bHLHe20; class B basic helix-loop-helix protein 7; oligo3; oligodendrocyte-specific bHLH transcription factor 3
