Gene: KLF7 (Kruppel like factor 7) Homo sapiens
Symbol: KLF7
Name: Kruppel like factor 7
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of adipose tissue development; negative regulation of insulin secretion involved in cellular response to glucose stimulus; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to nucleus.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
