Gene: NKX2-1 (NK2 homeobox 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: NKX2-1
Name: NK2 homeobox 1
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity; enzyme binding activity; and transcription regulatory region DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; negative regulation of transforming growth factor beta receptor signaling pathway; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the nucleus. Implicated in choreatic disease and thyroid gland papillary carcinoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED

NCBI Annotation Information: Note: TTF1 (GeneID 7270) and NKX2-1 (GeneID 7080) loci share the TTF1 symbol/alias in common. TTF1 is a widely used alternative name for thyroid transcription factor 1 (NKX2-1) conflicting with the official symbol for transcription termination factor, RNA polymerase I (TTF1). [13 Feb 2013]
