Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cochlea morphogenesis; negative regulation of mesenchymal cell apoptotic process; and sensory perception of sound. Predicted to localize to the nucleoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in X-linked nonsyndromic deafness. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; cranium; ear; embryo ectoderm; and embryo mesenchyme. Orthologous to human POU3F4 (POU class 3 homeobox 4).
