Gene: Hoxa4 (homeo box A4) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Hoxa4
Name: homeo box A4
RGD ID: 2814
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II transcription regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and activating transcription factor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in anterior/posterior pattern specification and embryonic skeletal system morphogenesis. Predicted to localize to nuclear body. Orthologous to human HOXA4 (homeobox A4); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; pirinixic acid; procymidone.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
