Gene: Irx6 (iroquois homeobox 6) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Irx6
Name: iroquois homeobox 6
RGD ID: 1564830
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; and sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including detection of visible light; regulation of transcription, DNA-templated; and retina morphogenesis in camera-type eye. Predicted to localize to nucleus. Orthologous to human IRX6 (iroquois homeobox 6); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzofuran; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: INFERRED
