Gene: Hoxb13 (homeobox B13) Mus musculus
Symbol: Hoxb13
Name: homeobox B13
Description: Predicted to have methyl-CpG binding activity. Involved in epithelial cell maturation involved in prostate gland development; prostate epithelial cord arborization involved in prostate glandular acinus morphogenesis; and regulation of growth. Localizes to the transcription factor complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in ductal carcinoma in situ and renal cell carcinoma. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; gut; lung; spinal cord; and tail. Orthologous to human HOXB13 (homeobox B13); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; all-trans-retinoic acid; benzo[a]pyrene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
