Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and RNA polymerase II transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including collagen fibril organization; regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and tendon development. Predicted to localize to nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; limb; sensory organ; and tendon. Orthologous to human MKX (mohawk homeobox).
