Gene: Bsx (brain specific homeobox) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Bsx
Name: brain specific homeobox
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including eating behavior; mammary gland involution; and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to cytoplasm; nucleus; and transcription regulator complex. Orthologous to human BSX (brain specific homeobox); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; bisphenol A; lead diacetate.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: INFERRED
Also known as: brain-specific homeobox protein homolog; LOC500982; RGD1565120; similar to brain-specific homeodomain protein
