Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA binding activity; DNA-binding transcription factor activity; and chromatin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; embryonic morphogenesis; and growth. Localizes to the nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 28 and posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; integumental system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human GRHL2 (grainyhead like transcription factor 2).
