Gene: Meis2 (Meis homeobox 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Meis2
Name: Meis homeobox 2
Description: Exhibits sequence-specific DNA binding activity; transcription coregulator activity; and transcription factor binding activity. Involved in eye development; negative regulation of myeloid cell differentiation; and visual learning. Localizes to the nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; limb; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human MEIS2 (Meis homeobox 2).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: A430109D20Rik; Cbp/p300-interacting transactivator with Glu/Asp-rich carboxy-terminal domain 2; homeobox protein Meis2; meis1-related protein 1; Meis2 homeobox; Mrg1; myeloid ecotropic viral integration site-related gene 1; Stra10
