Gene: Maf (avian musculoaponeurotic fibrosarcoma oncogene homolog) Mus musculus
Symbol: Maf
Name: avian musculoaponeurotic fibrosarcoma oncogene homolog
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including regulation of chondrocyte differentiation; regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and sensory organ development. Localizes to the cytoplasm and nucleus. Used to study cataract 21 multiple types and multiple myeloma. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cataract and cataract 21 multiple types. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; eye; genitourinary system; jaw; and lower leg. Orthologous to human MAF (MAF bZIP transcription factor); INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,4,6-trinitrobenzenesulfonic acid.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
