Gene: CBX7 (chromobox 7) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CBX7
Name: chromobox 7
Description: Predicted to have chromatin binding activity; methylated histone binding activity; and single-stranded RNA binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to cytosol and nucleus. Implicated in breast cancer; multiple myeloma; and myeloid leukemia. Biomarker of breast carcinoma; carcinoma (multiple); glioblastoma multiforme; stomach cancer (multiple); and urinary bladder cancer.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: chromobox homolog 7; chromobox protein homolog 7
