Gene: CARF (calcium responsive transcription factor) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CARF
Name: calcium responsive transcription factor
Description: Exhibits DNA binding activity and DNA-binding transcription factor activity. Involved in cellular response to potassium ion and positive regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter in response to calcium ion. Predicted to localize to nucleus; INTERACTS WITH aflatoxin B1; benzo[a]pyrene; butanal.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: ALS2CR8; amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 2 (juvenile) chromosome region, candidate 8; amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 2 chromosomal region candidate gene 8 protein; calcium-response factor; calcium-responsive transcription factor; DKFZp667N246; FLJ12675; FLJ21579; NYD-SP24; testis development protein NYD-SP24
