Gene: Elk1 (ETS transcription factor ELK1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Elk1
Name: ETS transcription factor ELK1
RGD ID: 1598663
Description: Exhibits RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity and chromatin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to gamma radiation; cellular response to testosterone stimulus; and positive regulation of neuron death. Localizes to several cellular components, including axon terminus; dendrite; and neuronal cell body. Biomarker of transient cerebral ischemia. Orthologous to human ELK1 (ETS transcription factor ELK1); PARTICIPATES IN adenosine signaling pathway; hypoxia inducible factor pathway; platelet-derived growth factor signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (R)-noradrenaline; (S)-amphetamine; (S)-nicotine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
