Gene: FOXJ2 (forkhead box J2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: FOXJ2
Name: forkhead box J2
RGD ID: 1344904
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and identical protein binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of vasculature development; positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and positive regulation of vascular associated smooth muscle cell proliferation. Localizes to fibrillar center and nucleoplasm; INTERACTS WITH (S)-colchicine; 2-methylcholine; adenine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: FHX; fork head homologous X; forkhead box protein J2; FOXJ2 forkhead factor
