Gene: MYOD1 (myogenic differentiation 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MYOD1
Name: myogenic differentiation 1
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II transcription regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and nuclear hormone receptor binding activity. Predicted to contribute to DNA binding activity. Involved in myotube cell development; positive regulation of myoblast fusion; and regulation of RNA metabolic process. Localizes to nucleoplasm.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
