Gene: Tub (tubby bipartite transcription factor) Mus musculus
Symbol: Tub
Name: tubby bipartite transcription factor
Description: Predicted to have G protein-coupled receptor binding activity and intraciliary transport particle A binding activity. Involved in several processes, including phagocytosis, recognition; photoreceptor cell maintenance; and protein localization to non-motile cilium. Localizes to the cytosol and extracellular region. Used to study obesity. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; endocrine gland; musculature; peripheral nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human TUB (TUB bipartite transcription factor); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; buta-1,3-diene; clobetasol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: rd5; retinal degeneration 5; tubby candidate; tubby protein
