Gene: Hoxa7 (homeobox A7) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Hoxa7
Name: homeobox A7
RGD ID: 1587253
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and transcription factor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including embryonic skeletal system morphogenesis; negative regulation of cell differentiation; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to nuclear membrane and nucleoplasm. Orthologous to human HOXA7 (homeobox A7); INTERACTS WITH 2,6-dinitrotoluene; 1,2-dimethylhydrazine (ortholog); 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine (ortholog).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
