Gene: Atxn7 (ataxin 7) Mus musculus
Symbol: Atxn7
Name: ataxin 7
Description: Exhibits chromatin binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of insulin-like growth factor receptor signaling pathway; negative regulation of phosphorylation; and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the cytoplasm and nucleus. Used to study spinocerebellar ataxia type 7. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in spinocerebellar ataxia type 7. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; peripheral nervous system; and retina. Orthologous to human ATXN7 (ataxin 7); PARTICIPATES IN RNA polymerase II transcription initiation pathway; INTERACTS WITH aflatoxin B1; carbon nanotube; ethanol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: A430107N12Rik; AI627028; ataxin-7; RIKEN cDNA A430107N12 gene; Sca7; spinocerebellar ataxia 7 homolog; spinocerebellar ataxia type 7 protein homolog
