Description
Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in photoreceptor cell development; posterior lateral line neuromast hair cell differentiation; and posterior lateral line neuromast mantle cell differentiation. Predicted to localize to nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including midbrain neural keel; nervous system; neural plate; pericardial region; and presumptive neural retina. Orthologous to human IRX4 (iroquois homeobox 4).
