Gene: OLIG1 (oligodendrocyte transcription factor 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: OLIG1
Name: oligodendrocyte transcription factor 1
RGD ID: 1350271
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in neuron differentiation and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to nuclear chromatin; INTERACTS WITH (+)-catechin; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; benzo[a]pyrene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
