Gene: Npas2 (neuronal PAS domain protein 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Npas2
Name: neuronal PAS domain protein 2
RGD ID: 1320158
Description: Exhibits DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including locomotor rhythm; positive regulation of behavioral fear response; and regulation of gene expression. Predicted to localize to cytosol; nucleoplasm; and transcription regulator complex. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; early conceptus; genitourinary system; intestine; and retina. Orthologous to human NPAS2 (neuronal PAS domain protein 2).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: bHLHe; bHLHe9; MGC129355; MO; MOP4; neuronal PAS domain-containing protein 2; neuronal PAS2
