Gene : ASCL2 Homo sapiens

Name  ? achaete-scute family bHLH transcription factor 2 Cytological Location  11p15.5
Brief Description  achaete-scute family bHLH transcription factor 2
Description  This gene is a member of the basic helix-loop-helix (BHLH) family of transcription factors. It activates transcription by binding to the E box (5'-CANNTG-3'). Dimerization with other BHLH proteins is required for efficient DNA binding. Involved in the determination of the neuronal precursors in the peripheral nervous system and the central nervous system.
