Gene: BSX (brain specific homeobox) Homo sapiens
Symbol: BSX
Name: brain specific homeobox
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to nuclear chromatin; INTERACTS WITH aflatoxin B1; benzo[a]pyrene; cyclosporin A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: brain-specific homeobox protein homolog; BSX1
