Gene: SNAI2 (snail family transcriptional repressor 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SNAI2
Name: snail family transcriptional repressor 2
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and E-box binding activity. Involved in several processes, including mesenchymal cell differentiation; negative regulation of cellular biosynthetic process; and negative regulation of signal transduction. Localizes to nuclear chromatin. Implicated in Waardenburg syndrome type 2D and piebaldism.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
