Gene: Bcl6 (B cell leukemia/lymphoma 6) Mus musculus
Symbol: Bcl6
Name: B cell leukemia/lymphoma 6
Description: Exhibits DNA binding activity and DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific. Involved in several processes, including hemopoiesis; negative regulation of signal transduction; and regulation of lymphocyte activation. Localizes to the nucleus. Predicted to colocalize with the replication fork. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in B-cell lymphoma and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; immune system; and liver and biliary system. Orthologous to human BCL6 (BCL6 transcription repressor); PARTICIPATES IN interleukin-4 signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dichloroethane; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3,3',5,5'-tetrabromobisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
