Gene: Myf5 (myogenic factor 5) Mus musculus
Symbol: Myf5
Name: myogenic factor 5
RGD ID: 1318026
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; regulation of cell-matrix adhesion; and somitogenesis. Predicted to localize to nucleoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; and limb. Orthologous to human MYF5 (myogenic factor 5); INTERACTS WITH 5-azacytidine; 5-fluorouracil; acetic acid.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
