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 camera-type eye morphogenesis; negative regulation of intrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway by p53 class mediator; and regulation of retinal ganglion cell axon guidance. Predicted to localize to nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including anterior neural rod; eye; forebrain; forebrain neural keel; and optic vesicle. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in syndromic microphthalmia 11. Orthologous to human VAX1 (ventral anterior homeobox 1).
