Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; HMG box domain binding activity; and protein heterodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including embryonic limb morphogenesis; embryonic skeletal system morphogenesis; and roof of mouth development. Localizes to the nucleus and transcription factor complex. Used to study parietal foramina. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in craniosynostosis and parietal foramina. Orthologous to human ALX4 (ALX homeobox 4).
