Gene: Maz (MYC associated zinc finger protein) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Maz
Name: MYC associated zinc finger protein
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and chromatin binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; regulation of signal transduction; and transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to cytoplasm and nucleus. Orthologous to human MAZ (MYC associated zinc finger protein); INTERACTS WITH acrylamide; bisphenol A; 17beta-estradiol (ortholog).
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: LOC691842; MYC-associated zinc finger protein; MYC-associated zinc finger protein (purine-binding transcription factor); Pur-1; purine-binding transcription factor; similar to Myc-associated zinc finger protein (MAZI) (Purine-binding transcription factor) (Pur-1)
