Gene: Foxn1 (forkhead box N1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Foxn1
Name: forkhead box N1
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in keratinocyte differentiation and thymus development. Predicted to localize to nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in T-cell immunodeficiency, congenital alopecia, and nail dystrophy; alopecia; nail disease; and primary immunodeficiency disease. Orthologous to human FOXN1 (forkhead box N1); INTERACTS WITH 2,6-dinitrotoluene; bisphenol A; C60 fullerene.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: forkhead box N1 (mapped); forkhead box protein N1; Foxn1_mapped; Rnu; RONU; Whn; winged-helix nude; Winged-helix nude (Rowett nude or rat athymic nude gene)
