Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity; chromatin binding activity; and intronic transcription regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; embryonic morphogenesis; and face development. Localizes to nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; integumental system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 28 and posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy 4. Orthologous to human GRHL2 (grainyhead like transcription factor 2).
