Description
Is predicted to enable DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in anatomical structure morphogenesis; cell differentiation; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Acts upstream of or within maintenance of animal organ identity. Predicted to be located in nucleus. Is expressed in female organism; gonad; ovarian follicle; ovary; and testis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in blepharophimosis, ptosis, and epicanthus inversus syndrome and primary ovarian insufficiency 3. Orthologous to human FOXL2 (forkhead box L2).
