Gene: Vsx2 (visual system homeobox 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Vsx2
Name: visual system homeobox 2
RGD ID: 621215
Description: Predicted to have sequence-specific double-stranded DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including regulation of neural retina development; regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and retinal bipolar neuron differentiation. Predicted to localize to cytoplasm and nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in blindness and isolated microphthalmia 2. Orthologous to human VSX2 (visual system homeobox 2); INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; acetamide.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: C. elegans ceh-10 homeo domain containing homolog; ceh-10 homeo domain containing homolog; ceh-10 homeo domain containing homolog (C. elegans); Chx10
