Gene Type: protein_coding_gene
Location: Chr: 4 Mapping Details/Browsers
Description: Exhibits sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to contribute to DNA-binding transcription factor activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; epithelial cell differentiation; and regulation of gene expression. Predicted to localize to RNA polymerase II transcription regulator complex. Is expressed in several structures, including digestive system; nervous system; neural tube; neuronal stem cell; and optic cup. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital central hypoventilation syndrome. Orthologous to human ASCL1 (achaete-scute family bHLH transcription factor 1).
