Gene Type: protein_coding_gene
Location: Chr: 14 Mapping Details/Browsers
Description: Predicted to have DNA binding activity; DNA-binding transcription factor activity; and protein dimerization activity. Involved in animal organ morphogenesis; regulation of neural retina development; and regulation of skeletal muscle cell differentiation. Predicted to localize to cytoplasm and nuclear speck. Is expressed in several structures, including nervous system; neural crest cell; optic cup; optic vesicle; and trunk. Orthologous to human ATOH8 (atonal bHLH transcription factor 8).
