Gene Type: protein_coding_gene
Location: Chr: 17 Mapping Details/Browsers
Description: Exhibits transcription regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in axial mesoderm morphogenesis; endoderm development; and nervous system development. Predicted to localize to the nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in type 2 diabetes mellitus. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; digestive system; endoderm; mesoderm; and swim bladder. Orthologous to human FOXA2 (forkhead box A2).
