Probable transcription factor associated with development of alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma. Can bind to DNA as a heterodimer with PAX7. Interacts with DAXX. Belongs to the paired homeobox family. 7 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
