Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have protein tyrosine phosphatase activity and transcription factor binding activity. Involved in middle ear morphogenesis and sensory perception of sound. Predicted to localize to nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; limb; sensory organ; trunk somite; and urinary system. Used to study otitis media. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 10; congestive heart failure; dilated cardiomyopathy; dilated cardiomyopathy 1J; and sensorineural hearing loss. Orthologous to human EYA4 (EYA transcriptional coactivator and phosphatase 4).
