Acts as a transcriptional repressor. May play a role in limb-pattern formation. Acts in cranofacial development and specifically in odontogenesis. Expression in the developing nail bed mesenchyme is important for nail plate thickness and integrity. Expressed in the developing nail bed mesenchyme. Belongs to the Msh homeobox family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: DNA-binding; Motility/polarity/chemotaxis
Biological Process: cell morphogenesis; negative regulation of cell growth; odontogenesis of dentine-containing teeth; positive regulation of DNA damage response, signal transduction by p53 class mediator; protein stabilization
