Description
Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in pancreatic A cell differentiation; spinal cord motor neuron differentiation; and type B pancreatic cell differentiation. Predicted to localize to nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; endoderm; neural plate; neuroectoderm; and pancreatic system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in spastic ataxia 8. Orthologous to human NKX6-2 (NK6 homeobox 2).
