XB-GENEPAGE-494739
Gene Symbol:
mecp2

Gene Name:
methyl-CpG binding protein 2

Synonyms:
( Add synonyms , Nomenclature history )

Gene Function:
methyl-CpG binding transcription factor

Protein Function :
Chromosomal protein that binds to methylated DNA. It can bind specifically to a single methyl-CpG pair. It is not influenced by sequences flanking the methyl-CpGs. Binds both 5-methylcytosine (5mC) and...[+]
