Gene: TCF12 (transcription factor 12) Homo sapiens
Symbol: TCF12
Name: transcription factor 12
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and bHLH transcription factor binding activity. Contributes to transcription regulatory region DNA binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to cytoplasm and nucleus. Implicated in craniosynostosis.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: bHLHb20; class B basic helix-loop-helix protein 20; CRS3; DNA-binding protein HTF4; E-box-binding protein; HEB; helix-loop-helix transcription factor 4; HsT17266; HTF4; p64; TCF-12; transcription factor 12 (HTF4, helix-loop-helix transcription factors 4); transcription factor HTF-4
