ETC6 Summary Help

Standard Name ETC6 1
Feature Type not physically mapped
Description Chromosome-organizing-clamp; tethers chromosomal regions to the nuclear periphery; binds TFIIIC transcription factor but does not recruit RNA Polymerase III; can act as a transcription-blocking insulator or as a heterochromatin barrier element; remains predominantly localized to the nuclear periphery throughout cell cycle; located between divergently transcribed genes TFC6 and ESC2 (2)
Name Description Extra TFIIIC 1
