Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA binding activity; DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; and chromatin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including male genitalia development; morphogenesis of an epithelium; and regulation of branching involved in prostate gland morphogenesis. Localizes to the nucleus. Used to study synpolydactyly. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in brachydactyly (multiple); brachydactyly-syndactyly syndrome; clubfoot; and cryptorchidism. Orthologous to human HOXD13 (homeobox D13).
