Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and methyl-CpG binding activity. Involved in animal organ development; motor neuron axon guidance; and negative regulation of apoptotic process. Predicted to localize to the nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in panhypopituitarism. Orthologous to human LHX4 (LIM homeobox 4).
