Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and chromatin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including maintenance of epithelial cell apical/basal polarity; nervous system development; and regulation of gene expression. Localizes to nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including branchial arch; limb; nervous system; sensory organ; and septum transversum. Orthologous to human LHX2 (LIM homeobox 2).
