Gene: Cbx7 (chromobox 7) Mus musculus
Symbol: Cbx7
Name: chromobox 7
RGD ID: 1550491
Description: Exhibits chromatin binding activity; methylated histone binding activity; and single-stranded RNA binding activity. Involved in sebaceous gland development. Localizes to PRC1 complex and heterochromatin. Is expressed in brain. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in breast cancer; multiple myeloma; and myeloid leukemia. Orthologous to human CBX7 (chromobox 7); PARTICIPATES IN histone modification pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dichloroethane; 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 2,2',4,4',5,5'-hexachlorobiphenyl.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
