Gene: Foxn2 (forkhead box N2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Foxn2
Name: forkhead box N2
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription factor activity and sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in skeletal muscle cell differentiation. Predicted to localize to the nucleus. Orthologous to human FOXN2 (forkhead box N2); INTERACTS WITH 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine (ortholog); 2-hydroxypropanoic acid (ortholog).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: forkhead box protein N2; LOC301676; RGD1562291; similar to Human T-cell leukemia virus enhancer factor (Forkhead box protein N2)
