Gene: PAX6 (paired box 6) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PAX6
Name: paired box 6
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; R-SMAD binding activity; and RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including camera-type eye development; pancreatic A cell development; and positive regulation of core promoter binding activity. Localizes to cytosol; nuclear chromatin; and nucleoplasm. Implicated in bilateral optic nerve hypoplasia; eye disease (multiple); glucose intolerance; and paranoid schizophrenia. Biomarker of pancreatic ductal carcinoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
