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 skeletal muscle tissue development. Predicted to localize to nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including Rohon-Beard neurons; adaxial cell; fin; muscle precursor cell; and musculature system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital structural myopathy. Orthologous to human MYF6 (myogenic factor 6).
