Description
Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II transcription regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in embryonic morphogenesis. Predicted to localize to nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including epidermis; median fin fold; pectoral fin; pectoral fin bud; and vent. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in craniosynostosis and parietal foramina. Orthologous to human MSX2 (msh homeobox 2).
