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 protein; Motility/polarity/chemotaxis
Biological Process: embryonic forelimb morphogenesis; transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter; negative regulation of striated muscle cell differentiation; muscle development; protein stabilization; in utero embryonic development; regulation of odontogenesis; mesenchymal cell proliferation; cell morphogenesis; middle ear morphogenesis; palate development; negative regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter; embryonic hindlimb morphogenesis; odontogenesis of dentine-containing teeth; anterior/posterior pattern formation; negative regulation of cell proliferation; pituitary gland development; midbrain development; positive regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter; negative regulation of cell growth; positive regulation of DNA damage response, signal transduction by p53 class mediator; positive regulation of BMP signaling pathway; negative regulation of apoptosis
