Gene: Homez (homeodomain leucine zipper-encoding gene) Mus musculus
Symbol: Homez
Name: homeodomain leucine zipper-encoding gene
Description: Exhibits DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including enteric nervous system; future brain; genitourinary system; liver; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human HOMEZ (homeobox and leucine zipper encoding); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 4,4'-diaminodiphenylmethane; aflatoxin B1.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: homeobox and leucine zipper protein Homez; homeodomain leucine zipper-containing factor; mKIAA1443
