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 apoptotic process involved in morphogenesis; cell fate specification; and nervous system development. Predicted to localize to nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including adaxial cell; central nervous system; muscle; neural plate; and pharyngeal arch. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autistic disorder. Orthologous to human EN2 (engrailed homeobox 2).
