Summaries for ARGFX Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ARGFX Gene

  • Homeobox genes encode DNA-binding proteins, many of which are thought to be involved in early embryonic development. Homeobox genes encode a DNA-binding domain of 60 to 63 amino acids referred to as the homeodomain. This gene is a member of the ARGFX homeobox gene family. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
