Gene: Emx1 (empty spiracles homeobox 1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Emx1
Name: empty spiracles homeobox 1
RGD ID: 1564002
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and RNA polymerase II intronic transcription regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including in utero embryonic development; nervous system development; and neuroepithelial cell differentiation. Predicted to localize to nucleolus. Orthologous to human EMX1 (empty spiracles homeobox 1); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzofuran; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: empty spiracles homolog 1; empty spiracles homolog 1 (Drosophila); homeobox protein EMX1; LOC500235; RGD1564002; similar to empty spiracles homolog 1
