Description
Exhibits chromatin binding activity and transcription regulatory region DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of axial mesodermal cell fate specification; nervous system development; and paraxial mesodermal cell fate specification. Predicted to localize to nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in corneal dystrophy; keratoconus; and posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy 1. Is expressed in blastomere; immature eye; nervous system; and neural tube. Orthologous to human VSX1 (visual system homeobox 1).
