Gene: Polr2a (RNA polymerase II subunit A) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Polr2a
Name: RNA polymerase II subunit A
Description: Predicted to contribute to RNA polymerase II activity. Involved in cellular response to oxygen levels and response to organic cyclic compound. Localizes to nucleus. Predicted to colocalize with Prp19 complex. Orthologous to human POLR2A (RNA polymerase II subunit A); PARTICIPATES IN RNA polymerase II transcription pathway; Huntington's disease pathway; purine metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,4-dinitrotoluene; 3H-1,2-dithiole-3-thione.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
