Gene: HMX2 (H6 family homeobox 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: HMX2
Name: H6 family homeobox 2
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including animal organ development; positive regulation of cell population proliferation; and regulation of RNA metabolic process. Predicted to localize to the nuclear chromatin.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: H6 homeo box 2; H6L; homeo box (H6 family) 2; homeobox (H6 family) 2; homeobox protein H6 family member 2; homeobox protein HMX2; Nkx5-2
