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 positive regulation of neurogenesis; retina layer formation; and swimming behavior. Predicted to localize to nucleus. Is expressed in eye and immature eye. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous. Orthologous to human ATOH7 (atonal bHLH transcription factor 7).
