Gene: BARX2 (BARX homeobox 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: BARX2
Name: BARX homeobox 2
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II transcription regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to cytosol and nucleoplasm.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: BarH-like homeobox 2; homeobox protein BarH-like 2; MGC133368; MGC133369
