Gene: ARNTL2 (aryl hydrocarbon receptor nuclear translocator like 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ARNTL2
Name: aryl hydrocarbon receptor nuclear translocator like 2
RGD ID: 737603
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and E-box binding activity. Involved in circadian rhythm and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to nucleolus and nucleoplasm. Implicated in hypertension and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: aryl hydrocarbon receptor nuclear translocator-like 2; aryl hydrocarbon receptor nuclear translocator-like protein 2; basic-helix-loop-helix-PAS protein MOP9; bHLHe6; BMAL2; brain and muscle ARNT-like 2; class E basic helix-loop-helix protein 6; CLIF; CYCLE-like factor; member of PAS protein 9; MGC149671; MGC149672; MOP9; PAS domain-containing protein 9; PASD9; transcription factor BMAL2
