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 several processes, including animal organ development; neural tube formation; and regulation of signal transduction. Predicted to localize to nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including anterior neural keel; central nervous system; ectoderm; neural plate; and presumptive structure. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in holoprosencephaly and holoprosencephaly 5. Orthologous to human ZIC2 (Zic family member 2).
