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 determination of heart left/right asymmetry; somite rostral/caudal axis specification; and somite specification. Predicted to localize to nucleus. Is expressed in margin; mesoderm; post-vent region; and somite. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in spondylocostal dysostosis. Orthologous to human MESP2 (mesoderm posterior bHLH transcription factor 2).
