Gene: Hoxc8 (homeobox C8) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Hoxc8
Name: homeobox C8
Description: Predicted to have DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including anterior/posterior pattern specification; negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and skeletal system morphogenesis. Predicted to localize to microtubule cytoskeleton and nucleoplasm. Orthologous to human HOXC8 (homeobox C8); INTERACTS WITH ammonium chloride; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine (ortholog); aldrin (ortholog).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: homeo box C8; homeo box C8 (mapped); Homeobox gene C8; homeobox protein Hox-C8; homeobox protein R4; Hox3r4; Hoxc8_mapped
