Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in anterior/posterior pattern specification; negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and skeletal system morphogenesis. Predicted to localize to the nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including adrenal gland; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; limb; and nervous system. Orthologous to human HOXD8 (homeobox D8).
