Gene: POU5F1B (POU class 5 homeobox 1B) Homo sapiens
Symbol: POU5F1B
Name: POU class 5 homeobox 1B
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific. Predicted to be involved in regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the cytosol; mitochondrion; and nucleoplasm.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
