Gene Type: protein_coding_gene
Location: Chr: 20 Mapping Details/Browsers
Description: Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and transcription regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in cell proliferation involved in compound eye morphogenesis. Predicted to localize to the nucleus and transcription factor complex. Is expressed in hypothalamus. Orthologous to human SIX6 (SIX homeobox 6).
