Gene: MAFB (MAF bZIP transcription factor B) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MAFB
Name: MAF bZIP transcription factor B
RGD ID: 732545
Description: Exhibits transcription factor binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of erythrocyte differentiation and regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Predicted to localize to nuclear chromatin. Implicated in Duane retraction syndrome and multicentric carpotarsal osteolysis syndrome.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
